THE ANSWER IS IN WONDERING

The morning glories are ignoring the season. 

In explaining why space is worth exploring, as NASA has frequently found itself doing, there’s a mistake supposition, because—as with anything of real value—the benefits are largely unknown. Why do it if you know you are doing it? It’s a philosophical matter, almost religious in its insolubility. Why do we need to love or live at all? The answer is in wondering.

Gosh, that sounds nice. I, myself, do not find the wondering about the meaning of life, why I am here, why does it hurt so often, all that awe-inspiring.

But, on to other issues. 

My little table at Grand Central Terminal.
Very grey again today, kind of making even the outdoors feel like the indoors. I found it rather oppressive and maybe foreboding? That did not keep me from finally getting my ever-larger-ass out of the house to take a walk. I always feel so busy. I did not get done what I had planned to today, mostly packing up this room or in my storage space making room for more things. I think the walk may have been the only thing on the agenda that did get accomplished. 

Which is not to say that I was idle; I was busy enough with household chores and Sociative work. I did continue to update my Linked-In profile. Resumes and all are such thankless, difficult tasks, particularly for those of us who are ... self-diffident. 

At any rate, I feel as if I have lost the rhythm and trick of writing this blog. My internal narrator and observer is just not fully functional these days. I think just writing more may help, but it could make for some less-than-stellar posts.

Part of this ... disaffectation (fyi, that is not a word this dictionary here knows) ... is worry. Worry about my future, about my finances, and about a couple of friends who are having some very serious life challenges. I can't, of course, write about them and their very serious issues, but I am thinking of them, and thoughts of them are on my mind quite a bit.

All right then, some more photos and I am off to bed. Wish me sleep luck.
