We all hear the phrase "follow your heart". But really, what the hell does it mean?
If I truly followed my heart, I would be dead or stuck in some horrible prison somewhere. We are animals with both reason and logic and our whole life is spent navigating between these two unruly masters who are actually governing what we do on a day to day basis. Oh, and the fact that we are biologically hardwired.
It was recently pointed out to me that we can't always follow our heart. And, I must agree with them - although, somewhat unwillingly. However, we all try, I think, to find our heart in what we do and it this action which truly defines our world. Yet, even armed with this knowledge, it is something I have great trouble in doing.
I quite often find myself swinging between the soporific desire to create "Hallmark moments", painting everything nihilistic black, or just mocking the whole damn thing as a fool's errand. I can't find the middle ground, and I truly admire those that can. Now, I don't mean to say that one is better than the other...just different...
Fuck it! I don't really know what I want to say...but a little of it is in the Trover photo post below. Try to enjoy it without the desire to mock it...but if you want to mock it or paint it black...Heh, who am I to stop you?.
