Yes, yes, long time, no write. I have been as busy as the King of Couches - that is, Sofa King busy. In fact, I should be sleeping right now, because I have to be awake in about five hours and if I don't get my happy ass outta bed then I won't get to do all the super cool things I need to do tomorrow. Anyway, in bed, I was reflecting on a conversation I'd had earlier about emotional intimacy. I said at some point that it was "souls touching," and my interlocutor asked, "But aren't you an atheist?"
"So you don't believe in souls, right?"
"Of course not. But that's still what I mean. That's still what it feels like."
This "clarification" did not help things.
