About

Lalie is a human being from the Southern United States who is happy to be here, being a person, right now in this strange and marvelous moment in history.

Hey! This is my blog.

I don’t know what it’s about & I’m excited find out.

I can’t rightly categorize myself as having interests. I think, more simply, I’m interested. An incurably curious human being. The specific interests are constantly changing.

I’m curious about the way this world works right now, and the ways it might in the future. About the way we learned to love each other, and the ways we might love better. About what we’ve made, and what we might make. About what humans are, and what we will be. I’m curious about the boundaries and the content of knowing.

And I want to stay curious, and I want to take nothing for granted. As Mary Oliver said, so wonderfully:

When it’s over, I want to say: all my life

I was a bride married to amazement.

I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder

if I have made of my life something particular, and real.

Mary Oliver, “When Death Comes”

So this is my blog, where I hope to tend joyfully to my many and unbound curiosities, and to practice allowing my own complexity and wholeness, & therefore the complexity and wholeness of others.

I’m glad you’re here.

Lalie.
