A really good video on the “day in, day out” of modern adult existence – and how not to turn into an unconscious idiot that stumbles through life (before death).
The only thing that is captial T true is that you get to decide how you are going to try to see it. This, I submit, is the freedom of true education. Of learning how to be well-adjusted. You get to consciously decide what has meaning and what doesn’t. That is real freedom. That is being educated, and understanding how to think. The alternative is unconsciousness, the default setting, the rat race, the constant gnawing feeling of having had and lost some infinite thing.
In other news, I have gotten my hands on the entire collection of Sandman graphic novels, which means that my reading debt has increased by a good 25%.
How I love happy problems like this. If there is ever a “rub my hands in glee” moment, this will be it.
And: life has been chugging along steadily over here. How is it on your side?
