I already have quite a web presence, from a blog, to a web hub, to social media. My two primary sites are www.RedFuzzyJesus.com and www.GabrielHudson.org. However, I still seek a site as a quick-reference reservoir for visual inspiration and quick snippets of a life well lived. No site description can ever adequately capture a value system or philosophy of living. But to hint at that endeavor, I actively try to counter the mundane obligations of day-to-day adult life with art, travel, fitness, and constant challenges. I don’t have a regular work schedule or primary pursuit. Related, I seek the paradox of intimacy and solitude. Part of me retreats into a cell of independence in which long periods of time are spent wandering alone and submerging into my core. Simultaneously I seek real connections with people at an identity level. I barely tolerate small talk and manners. I prefer raw human interaction often at the expense of comfort and frequently the product of provocation. I acknowledge the inherent risk in this. These two impulses are not as contradictory as they may initially seem. I want to better know the me that is me. One way of doing that is to dig around in the you that is you. My mind fires on all cylinders all the time. It can be difficult to concentrate. My mental state could most simply be described as dozens of televisions each tuned to a different channel with the volume all the way up. Rather than contort under that cacophony I prefer to utilize it to fuel a richer, more complex, more thoughtful existence. And a way to live this life, with solitude and intimacy, with constant discovery, with art and music and travel and food and raw sensual stimulation, is to capture little pieces along the way. Why one more URL? Surely this becomes redundant at some point. Maybe. We’ll see. Right now I like the possibilities of using a site like a mental tank that supplies the rest of my on-and-offline life. I think it could be a good way to jolt my memory from time to time regarding the me I want to be. And perhaps another convenient way for you to see a piece of me too.
