Deep peace of the quiet earth to you. 

What keeps us running.

February 26, 2019

 

We take to the road because we aren't happy--or we don't think we're happy--or because we think there's something else out there we *should* be doing. Well, no matter what the motivation, the essence of it is this: we feel harried and hassled to move up, move on, improve, or any number of 'get better' verbiage you care to throw in there. 

 

So maybe, yes, there's a sprinkling of the unknown factoring in here, but I think what we fear most is what we know--that it isn't 'good enough' or enough, full-stop. So we keep pursuing this suspiciously out of reach carrot-on-a-stick dangling in front of us, never stopping to wonder who exactly is holding it in the first place.
