Stifling.

The heat these last few days has been strangulating.  Another restless night transpired as a result.

I’m travelling to my home town in two short days.  Given my recent relinquishment of expectation, I’ve not put much thought into why I’m going.

Perhaps change begins with a reassessment of current states.  I do know one thing is certain, a change of scenery should afford my mind some much needed clarity.

Mostly Sleepless Night

It seems consideration for others remains at an all time low, as my neighbours continue what I can only assume are rhythmic experiments pertaining to man made earthquake preparation.

Perhaps I should be thankful?

I can hardly complain.  As far as sleepless nights go, my last wasn’t so bad.  I do some of my best thinking lying awake.  Last night I found myself concerned by how easily attainable motivation to value one’s own interest above the collective interest of others was.

Perhaps if we were able to derive the root of this motivation, and make it more difficult/less appealing to attain, things would improve.

I’ll have to think on this concept more.

Catalyst for Change

Change is necessary for life.

Change begets uncertainty.

Uncertainty is not intrinsically bad.

Given these three premises and billions of years of evolution it’s unbelievable to me how terrified and opposed we are to change.  We, as a species, consume countless resources fighting and preparing for change.  We as individuals often break down fundamentally in the face of sporadic or rapid change.

I believe the acceptance of change lies in the relinquishment of our expectations of and from it.  I believe that in many instances stability and uncertainty are not mutually exclusive of one another, and finally…

I believe that nothing can and will ever change,  for the better, if people don’t talk.

This blog will be my voice in the conversation of life.  My opinions and the events in my life will be posted here as they happen.  Society is a smog of filters in modern culture, and no one can expect anyone’s life to improve if we can’t see each other clearly.
