b00k beginning again --
since late august and throughout the duration of my residency in the b00k house, I will be working, studying, and thinking within the frame of a phd program
the phd program is a particular way of formalizing thinking, and -- it is a kind of study that is sustained, in part, through the fantasy of its formality
(those of us involved in the phd machine submit to these formalities in various degrees and for various purposes)
throughout my stay in the b00k house, I want to attend to the informal flows of thought that arise in the meantime of this other formalization of study
these thoughts usually come early in the morning, when I’m still lying in bed & using the notes app on my phone
the lying in bed part is important -- to record how the horizontal thinks .
also - in the the last three places i have lived, including where I am now - in Philadelphia - i have been lucky to have my bed facing a window, or windows
this is also important - the sensing of what is outside coming right away
the feeling of what seeps in, or what might be leaking,
disturbing a fantasy of privacy or a problem of isolation that attends the home, the apartment, the dwelling
what is the sociality of this interiority?
how much to let goooOOoooo ?
