When you have an idea and say it, then you have to wear it like a coat and see what sort of effect it has on things. All day I was thinking about this notion of 'forgetting yourself' and how complex and problem filled this idea really is. In a world where certain voices are universalised while others are subjugated, how is it possible to forget who you are?

... but to forget oneself it is first of all necessary to be firmly assured that now and for the future one has found oneself

-Simone de Beauvoir
