I got a good chunk of reading done this morning on the train. According to Sartre, we as humans must be perpetually suffering because we are for itself (consciousness), but we have access to the in-itself but we can’t ever be in- itself. I am not sure I really understand that but it did make me think about meditation. Meditation is basically an attempt to empty your mind (something I have never been very successful at), but there are some people who are very good at it. I was thinking it might be possible to voluntarily surrender ones consciousness. Something to think about I guess.
I didn’t get any sewing done on the train because we were all crammed in like sardines and I didn’t want to be nudging people with my elbows. I did get two blocks done when I got home today though. They were quite simple ones, but still quite pretty.
