making sense

lonesome work, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

"stop making sense"
-Talking Heads

yep...stop making what does it all mean anyway?
all this meaning in the world...all our defining jobs, titles, things we own...
what does it all mean? I am not sure.

if we all got up in the morning and were not defined by the exterior world what would we be? It would be tough to do this of course, but i find myself walking to work at times, and really enjoying the simplicity of this activity, and wondering what makes our life meaningful...of course the given things like family, love, friends etc..of course...but beyond that...what is it each day that makes us move and gives us meaning? I suppose depending on where you live this may be a different answer...and this is not something i have the answer to by the way, I am just begging the question...for us...some days I am content to do nothing and say very little and other days I want to do a million things all at once. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up and I still like to play.

point being, in the simplicity of life, what makes sense to you? What things are important to you? I don't think they need to be profound, just real...on the journey to make our lives more meaningful, i think we search for things that others say are important and that is what I'd like to not do...but that is not easy....

The road less travelled...i think that is important...

Love and Understanding.
