How do we decide?

Recently, I was bored, a state with which I'm not very familiar. It didn't last long. I'm really good at a lot of different (and unpredictable) moods but boredom is not usually a part of my life. How could it be?

There is so much. There is just so much in the world. This isn't about possessions. This is about there being so many books to read, so much learning that can be undertaken, so much art to consider and so much of interest to enjoy. Wow.

I don't know how many books I have on the go right now. And there are always more that I can find and really want to read. I almost wish that I could divide up my attention and read multiple (maybe six) books at once. It would be so efficient but there are many, many details to work out yet before I can do that. Until I come up with the technology to enable this, and I do hope to share it, I will have to settle for reading one book at a time. Or one article. Or one outline from a course I've taken and want to study in more detail.

It is important to be present, now. We must make priorities to delve into that which interests us and do that now, devoting as much of our attention as we can. I guess we won't get everything done that we could possibly want to do. But we can sure enjoy a lot of life's wonder. I just want to enjoy it quickly so that I can pack more in! Vite! Vite!
