Hello! I’m Saalik. Through software, essays, and poetry, I explore unexpected interconnections.

I see myself as a systems thinker with a mystical bend. Navigating the intangible, I’m currently exploring a life that’s untethered from the norm. It’s full of uncertainty, wandering, and wonder.

What you’ll on this publication is a smorgasbord of thoughts on technology, value, language, and presence. The Spoonful is an ever-evolving buffet.

New posts are published every week or two. They’re organized into seasons. Each season of writing and life is punctuated by a recap.

A couple goodies

On a metaphor that explains the internet:

I’m always down to chat! Feel free to check out my website to find links to the socials, or send me an email: saalik@thespoonful.blog.
