Despite this being a stream of consciousness blog, there are days when I’m reluctant to record here what I’m actually thinking at the time when I sit down to write.  Oftentimes when this happens I simply delay doing the entry until I find thoughts I’m more comfortable sharing or, barring that, I find the certainty that, reluctant or not, those thoughts are what I need to write about today.  Today, however, my schedule doesn’t allow for either of those options.

Sometimes I consider the future of humanity and I despair; it would be a lie to pretend otherwise.

This is still an improvement over my youth when I was certain humanity didn’t have a future.

I must lose myself in action, lest I wither in despair.
