distraction from distraction by distraction


T.S. Eliot talks about "distraction from distraction by distraction" in Burnt Norton, and boy, does that seem appropriate for our modern world.

Edinburgh philosopher John Llewelyn says this "denotes a way of life lived utterly unseriously, in which one allows oneself to be driven hither and thither by one whim after another without rhyme or reason."

happy 2013

Happy new year.  I hope your 2013 is off to a fabulous start.

It seems the theme for this year is "I don't believe in New Year's resolutions."  Not because people don't want to constantly better themselves but because they don't want to be limited to only doing so on New Year's.  Fair enough.
