late-night drunken reflections
Alan Watts’ take on selfhood has always been incredibly fascinating to me, and furthermore, his attitudes towards work and play have always mirrored architect Bucky Fuller’s beliefs in technology, human potential, and the future of labor separated from exploitative assholes.
It didn’t occur to me until tonight that these things are all basically playing into the fundamentals of occupational therapy: health through life satisfaction and a recognition of selfhood as including the objects surrounding the individual (including people and the environment), the nature of work, play, and leisure, and the ideal outcomes of occupation are all things that are visible within these great authors’ texts. I’m hoping to read Henri Lefebvre’s works next; it only kinda freaks me out that basically everything I’ve been reading for leisure in the past three years or so has been about something related to OT without me realizing it
I think I might be okay, I’m learning a lot of things at once right now and don’t have much time to really think about style or fashion, so my outfits might not be as cooll, but this blog was always about me doing whatever anyway, so
let’s fucking DO THIS
once you start liking that Japanese shit, there’s no going back. you’re gonna be eyeing everything in visvim’s catalog and wondering who you can rob to get the $700 for some FBT boots
Today, I got to wear a 60-year-old Japanese robe.
It was riddled with holes, no doubt from moth bites and daily wear, but thankfully, the person I bought it from shipped it to me with good fabric and thread to patch it up. It’s a little long on me compared to how I’ve seen it sit on other people, but I like it anyway. It needs a lot of work— one of the sleeves is torn right down the middle and I can’t tell if fabric is missing or if it just needs to be sewn together again— but it is something I look forward to doing in my spare time.
Let’s see what happens.
