Through the mist comes uncertainty. Ever wonder why each of us has this innate desire to procreate? A need to pass the torch to another . . . It’s as normal as eating and when someone can’t, we feel their pain . . .
Raising children gives us more than it takes. We learn to give, learn to forgive and learn to see the world through the eyes of what it could be rather than what it is.
Uncertainty excites, certainty detracts. We are all going to die . . . But until that day, we live . . . Will we be rich or poor, healthy or something else? Will we be giving, compassionate, friendly, loving or . . . ? Will we be successful?
What is success? So often success seems to relate to money, but is it? What is Religion? Is it merely a belief . . . ? Is it supposed to heal the soul, to raise us to a higher caring, higher propose?
We work, we become involved in our children’s lives, our own lives . . . And each interest separates us from the rest . . . Somehow we believe we are different, but are we?
What fills the white space, the space between lines? Many famous writers . . . They no longer write . . . We don’t read anymore . . . We don’t value the written word anymore. Or is there too much to choose from, too much to disseminate, too much to dissect, to validate because it is based on half truths or whims of some sort of expert in some field . . . ?
Sales, is all anyone seems to care about. Sales of books, of newspapers . . . And what if the words don’t sell?
They are no more. What if Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Tolstoy, Faulkner never wrote? What if Degas, Renoir, Monet, Cezanne, Pissarro never raised a brush?
Did writers write in the dark ages? Of course . . . So where are the books? Dust . . . Remember those required worthless classes?
The dark ages can and will happen again . . .
