About Me

Image – Harajuku, Tokyo, Dec 19

We spend our lives trying to figure out what kind of person we are, but others can understand us, in our entirety, at a glance. Our identity “is implicit in everything we say and do,” writes Hannah Arendt in The Human Condition, but we cannot see it ourselves.
