2 iPods & a tripod
Current mood: apathetic
Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Apparently, life’s what happens while you’re making other plans, and not posting to my blog doesn’t seem to slow that down a bit. Actually, not much has changed lately. ssdd.
We work. We come home, and disappear into our iPods. How two people can live and work together and talk as little as we do I don’t think I’ll ever know. I guess it might be odd or awkward for some people to sit in the same room and NOT talk for hours. The silence can be nice, though. It’s tough to sort out your thoughts when someone is yammering on constantly about whatever. But anyways.. Hmm.. big news…. Oh, the cat has a hurt paw. He’s been limping around for a few days, yelling at us when we clean it out. He’s now nicknamed tripod. original, huh?
It’s been nice to reconnect with another ghost from the past. It’s rare to have a real connection with someone, and it’s rare to be so blessed as to get them back in your life.
I guess this is where I get philosophical for a bit. Cogitate on the difference between surviving and living. Our dreams are so unbelievably important. Not our sleeping weird-o dreams, but our aspirations and plans and goals. I told someone once that when you give up on your dreams, you die. Not physically, of course, but inside. The little candle light that is hope and happiness goes out. She, of course, vehemently disagreed with me, because she had already given up on her dreams. But I still stand by that particular opinion. You see and deal with people every day who have given up on their dreams. The sour, rude, inconsiderate assholes that make up the general populace. It’s essential that you allow room for your dreams to change, and grow, as you change and grow. But you can’t give up.
So, here’s the true question from a founding father of the “lost” generation. What if you don’t have a dream? We all have things that we want in life, and hopes and aspirations…. But what if you don’t? What if it’s all…. just….. whatever? I guess, then, you spend your days trying to make other people happy, and trying to help them make their dreams come true?
And on that happy note, goodnight….
