What I Do

You may be wondering what it is that I do in my day-to-day life as a mighty warrior who is remembering a past incarnation as a ancient fighter (read my About Me page). I am many things: first and foremost a character in a cosmic storyline, a student, a zealot with a revolutionary spirit, a visionary, a poet, a musician, and cosmopolitan. Like Socrates I claim to be a resident of the world, because my blood contains traces from all the corners of the earth. If not my lifeblood, my mind also bears the traces of wide travels and wider influence.

My day-to-day life is spent in pursuit of knowledge, for it is knowledge that keeps this mad world suspended and spinning, and knowledge that inspires me to continue living. I study languages; the ancient and glorious tongues of the Romans and the Greeks. I study their minds, their thoughts, their arts, and I imbibe their lessons. I also study the language of music, and have learned to play violin, piano, guitar, mandolin, cello, and to sing. I love to express the truth and beauty of the universe through these skills, because music is the language of the universe, it is everything. Music has the virtues of mathematics and of spoken language, the virtue of precision and of expression simultaneously.

In my daily life, I attend classes, take exams, practice instruments, spend time with friends and learn new things every day. Every passing day strengthens my convictions that despite the ordinariness of it all, what is ordinary can be beautiful. There is very little of mundane life that cannot be made interesting with the right mindset. I have put my tears, blood, sweat and poetry into my pursuits, which is an attainment already.

In short, I am a creative force who seeks to find the connections in all knowledge and to use them for new modes of expression. Though there are many things I have yet to discover about the world and myself, that is who I am.

Cheers,

Achillea
