Just what the title says. I’d give a more detailed summary, but I have a train to catch.
It strikes me as curious that as a species, we have developed a massive industry centered around keeping ourselves entertained. When you think of times and places where you would feel a need to be entertained, it’s usually someplace where you would be otherwise bored, for example, waiting at the doctor’s office, waiting in line at the DMV, or waiting for your plane to land. So is the underlying truth that life is just… waiting?
2019 has arrived as inevitably as planned. Wherever you are, I hope the new year has been treating you well. For me, it is yet another reminder of the cold hand of death closing ever so slowly around my throat, but hey — that’s part of the fun, right?
