Human Iterations

The allure, to me, of polyamory has always been its promise of addressing reality head on. Of communicating and grappling with the complexities in our lives and relationships in an honest and audacious manner. But I am not so on board with those who define it as in terms of “casual love.”

I’m currently browsing through Land of Lisp, Common Lisp: A Gentle Introduction To Symbolic Programming, and SICP though I do plan to go through Land of Lisp first as I dabble in CSS, HTML, and basics of computer design.
