Resting the Mind

So, when was it I wrote here last? My urge to communicate to the (cyber) world is dwindling (un)fortunately. I think when hell broke loose soon to be one year ago, I wanted everyone to get a wake-up call: don’t waste your life, don’t take anything for granted, don’t worry, be happy, take care of your family and friends and the list goes on. It’s perhaps time for me to rest the mind or as Captain J. A. Hadfield once put it:

This art of resting the mind and the power of dismissing from it all care and worry is probably one of the secrets of energy in our great men.

Now? I am slowly living normally. I look forward to starting work again, I look forward to spending Christmas in its true sense and I have ENERGY! I’m starting to feel like a Duracell battery again.

On the other hand, according to Albert Camus:

Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.
