I’m the kind of person who likes to be by himself. To put a finer point on it, I’m the type of person who doesn’t find it painful to be alone. I find spending an hour or two every day running alone, not speaking to anyone, as well as four or five hours alone at my desk, to be neither difficult nor boring. I’ve had this tendency ever since I was young, when, given a choice, I much preferred reading books on my own or concentrating on listening to music over being with someone else. I could always think of things to do by myself.

What is a Goddess: “A woman who is in the process of learning to know, accept and love herself on all levels, Mind, Body and Spirit. A woman who, because she focuses on personal growth and self awareness, experiences a life increasingly filled with peace, love, joy, passion and fun. A woman that understands that she has unlimited capacity to make her life anything she wants. A woman who is inspired to give to those around her, a sense of gratitude and abundance.”

On Kaladesh, a view from a different angle

Boy, it’s been quite the month for me, from the paxplosion of kaladesh through the actual release of the set this week, and quite the emotional roller coaster. Tides of support matched by tides of hate, lots of questions, comments, and reconsidered positions on where i stand with the set and the game as a whole.

Among the many comments my essay got, one particularly stood out to me. This person, whose name I’ve sadly forgotten, said “Kaladesh doesn’t take place in India, it takes place in Silicon Valley”.

When I first read this, I laughed out loud, because I live in Silicon Valley, and the idea was completely hilarious. And then I stopped laughing, because I realized that it was true. Kaladesh really is my culture after all.
