Behind the facade of these words is more than an idea. Behind this constructed veneer of pixels and binary code is a person who spills milk and laughs about it. So, when you consider your interaction with this world of idols and surfaces, remember that it is not me you’re looking at but rather an idea you have of me. Remember that I am not who you think I am, nor probably even who I think I am. I am not the words I attach to this fleeting digital expression of self. I am (not) what I profess to believe. I am (not) a pure expression of something deeper than a creed. I am (not) found in this or that label. And I really hope that my identity isn’t something I care too much to preserve, because I understand that I will only lose what I try desperately to keep, and that I can only keep what I do not own.
