a man who sought out reason through his wonderful intellect has passed.
christopher hitchens died yesterday of cancer of the esophagus. but as it has been said by many more effectual than i he will always be with us.
he was a writer always projecting his wonderful position of reason over superstition. of science over metaphysics. of life over religion.
i in my short short time of reading and being with his ideas have been forever influenced. his abilities have become a lofty and longed for standard to aspire to. his ideas became a kind of platform for my liberation from a much guilt ridden past and much desired for future.
so he has left. his pain from his cancer is no more and for this i am glad.
he left a plethora of work here to absorb. and so i shall attempt that.
goodbye to a man i feel a friendship with along with a debt that i must try and resolve.
