Thanks Vincent! It's a little funny that you say that, because most of this was just my notes that I was using to figure out what I was going to say for the video. But it did go through a couple of drafts.
The Tao Te Ching and other Chinese classics definitely have an influence on the way I write. I often refer to the Chinese tradition that writing should be beautiful as well as useful, so it sounds like I got close this time. I also try to use only words with two syllables or less, so that might help with the rhythm of it.
I don't meditate before I post, but sometimes writing can be a spiritual process for me. I get intense and emotional, I start weeping. This time wasn't quite that strong, but I certainly felt something towards the end.
Thanks again, talk soon.
