About the Site

The urban version of spreading the love.

You meet interesting people when you are stuck in the middle seat on an airplane.  Its kind of a karmic fact: you are going to be sat between one overweight person or small child or angry looking ax-murderer, and you are going to be sat next to someone else who is simply fascinating.  Completely different than you, of course.  Perhaps a little alarming in their own way.  Definitely has made some choices you wouldn’t, seen some places you haven’t, had some experiences  you never will.

Through out most of our lives we meet people similar to us.  People who grow up and think like we do.  But, there, in that middle seat, you meet people who in your wildest dreams you didn’t even know existed.   All you are sure to have in common is your destination.

And’s that cool.

So this blog is a series of essays about facets of being human, ranging from social theories, to personal encounters, to whimsical ponders of faceted moments.  When I can, I try to include my photography as accompaniment.  Pictures not taken by my are usually marked as such, or blatantly obviously not mine.

    Hi my name is Nick DeBonis and I am looking to do an Arabic immersion program in Amman. I was wondering if you would be available to talk via email or chat.

    I read your piece on Thanatos this morning which was a thought provoking introduction to your website. I look forward to perusing more of your work.
