“In our description of nature the purpose is not to disclose the real essence of the phenomena but only to track down, as far as possible, relations between the manifold aspects of our experience.” ~ Neils Bohr
“Modernist manuals of writing often conflate story with conflict. This reductionism reflects a culture that inflates aggression and competition while cultivating ignorance of other behavioral options. No narrative of any complexity can be built on or reduced to a single element. Conflict is one kind of behavior. There are others, equally important in any human life, such as relating, finding, losing, bearing, discovering, parting, changing. Change is the universal aspect of all these sources of story. Story is something moving, something happening, something or somebody changing.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
It’s been a strange few days for me, and I am wiped out from the whole adventure. See, I’m working on my positivity, I called it an “adventure”. Hey, and what about the national news? Ain’t it all weird and scary? Yes it is. But I have a cat on my lap and two cups of coffee in my belly. I hate the word “belly”, but what ya gonna do? You only have so much to work with. Anyway, I’m running late again, darn it. It has felt good to ease out for a while before work. I don’t usually do that. I will space out on occasion, but that is usually not restful. Besides, I can space out any time of day. But, alas, it is time to boost the cat and step into a new day. Is it the first day of the rest of my life? I’d best say yes it is, since I am working on my positivity.
Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
