Nothing From Nothing Ain't Nothing

The power of being able to do nothing.

To enjoy, doing nothing.

We run from nothing in this nation.

We activate our lives to the point of over-saturation and still...

We lack the ability to say we are satisfied.

Doing nothing is of course something.

It may be for Americans the most disciplined decision we could make.

When we get quiet with ourselves we are forced to really look at what we are when we are alone, not spending, not entertaining, not producing.

This time makes us feel vulnerable and so we run...
and we teach our children to run.

We attempt to elude the experience of understanding who we are without our things, our awards, our events that mark who we think we are.

We are a composite of memories housed in a fragile cell based shell.

We are souls cast into fluid motion.

We are not from here and will not always be here.

We are, I am solid need of remembering all these things.

There is more to where I am and where I am going than the noise of my own activities.

It is the silence in between the notes of my time now that I struggle to find comfort in.

And maybe that is ok..

Maybe it is important to put ourselves into uncomfortable situations, rather than waiting for the lesson to be learned through another force of events.

Doing nothing...
an oxymoron perhaps...
a concept to dwell in....
an activity to master.

Now this is a great blog. Volumes are spoken even between the lines of words sinking beyond our guarded temples. Nothing is something and NO choice is STILL a choice. Ah....only in America.....
