At one point I thought about calling this blog The Sutter Collection. I mainly decided against it because of what I associate with the word “collection”… it reminds me of dusty glass model houses, small spoons, hot wheels (also dusty). There’s a kind of stagnation, motionlessness, that I have stuck in my head when it comes to that word. It automatically makes me less enthusiastic about a thing, and that’s pretty much the opposite of the whole point of this blogs existence.
Collections aren’t all that bad though, and I might even make a separate site with that heading in the mid to long term but… I don’t want to collect things. I want a blog, a platform, a, well, a whatever the fuck that feels alive. That is alive. The organic feel, the forward motion, the ups and downs in momentum, that’s a lot more appealing to me than a collection. A lot more inspiring. Really, if I think about it, the heading I did decide to go with is perfect. Heart of a Lunatic.
That sounds very much alive, doesn’t it. Sometimes it slows and sometimes it goes hard and fast like a fucking jackhammer. There are even times when I feel like it’s going to seize up and stop beating. Amazing how accidentally and enduringly perfect the title has turned out to be.
