We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Embracing the Silence

31st March 2010

Read it.

Lately I’ve been having conversations with a friend about the importance of the menial, everyday tasks in our lives, and how they provide wonderful opportunities to let our minds loose to roam, explore, and process.

Doing the dishes.

Running a handpress.

Mowing the lawn.

Driving to work, without listening to the radio or CD player.



Sorting all of the pieces of shrimp out of a plate of shrimp fried rice because you love fried rice but detest shrimp. (U.S.S. John F. Kennedy CVA-67, 1970)

    You mowed the lawn and drove to work on an aircraft carrier? Wow!

    Hey, if it was easy, anybody could do it.

    And by all reports, there was never any grass taller than 2 inches on the carrier during his entire stay.
