Brain strain

I started reading this article in the current issue of Jacket about George Oppern's [beautiful] poetry and Heidegger's phenomenology, and it sent me down a philosophical rabbit hole.

I've been reading so much my eyes and brain are starting to hurt. But I love it. It sometimes scares me how strong an impulse I have to try and know/understand/learn everything. It's exhilarating, yet exhausting. I'm glad I have a sturdy notebook in which to write down the constant barrage of new information.
