November 20, 2006 Distant Voices: Faerytales
I’m very fond of the faerytales. They are pretty and they do provide a measure of meaning in an otherwise meaningless world. It’s too sad to most people to think there’s no meaning to existence other than what we give it and what we take for ourselves, but I find that rather empowering. I was wondering around wondering about my purpose in the grand scheme of things until I realized that meaning was not going to just arbitrarily seek me out and find me and that I had to define my role for myself.
So that’s what I’m doing daily.
