I am a Hedonist. I seek pleasure as a path to the righteous and good. Yes, this includes food, sex, travel, and elements of luxury. It also includes the discomfort you feel when doing the right thing, no matter the cost. For me Hedonism is a feeling, not of indulgence, but of the moment. That moment that leads to an ephemeral happiness. Happiness is not a permanent state of humanity; rather it is a passing time, a frame of the moving picture. The idea of Good/Right is too broad a concept to paint on a canvas, use only one ideal, or choose a path. Hedonists aspire to pleasure. I seek to capture those moments with words.
I have traveled some. I will travel more, as time and life allows. In that space between–I breathe and write.
