Once again, the holidays are upon us. I must say…two posts a year from someone like me is akin to the death knell of a once-busy weblog. It’s mostly because I don’t have anything interesting to say; therefore, I do not want to waste your precious reading time with blather.
Laying low and allowing the events to transpire around me is enough for this Taobabe. I was given many opportunities to become part of the teams of people who are working diligently to awaken humanity, and I chickened out at the last minute on all of those opportunities. I am not yet at the stage (emotionally and mentally) where I can lead and guide, beyond what I have been doing thus far.
Having said this, I must state for the record that life has been busy for me lately, as I go through the different iterations of my winding path through life. It has never been a straight and narrow path. Those paths are quite often violent and unyielding, as they cut their straight and narrow way through granite mountains and dig under watercourses and swamps. These straight as-the-crow-flies paths are well-suited only to the most strict and stringent of travelers who will allow nothing to obstruct their onward march towards their meticulously planned destination.
My path—LOL—my path is wide and winding, following the course of least resistance, and quite often, most scenic of routes. Sometimes, even I do not know why I do the things I do. I follow that instinct within, and explore with reckless abandon, those things that I am curious about. Sometimes, it leads me into gullies, and sometimes, it leads me into valleys, but it always leads me somewhere interesting. My main job, after all, is to feed the most interesting experiences back to the Universe.
Towards this goal, I say: May your life be interesting, and may all your endeavors produce a bumper crop of experiences that you can look back at and smile with fondness.
