In all the lines you’ll see, there’s a perception of direction. If you found a line on a piece of paper, if you rotate it, the direction changes. Then think about yourself: what kind of direction are you in today, in this present moment, in your whereabout? Is That direction a choice you made or are you living in a line of another one? We are a point in that line, choosing our fate, everyday, in every direction we have chosen or even if we haven’t chosen.

    That a pretty good question. I really hate routine, but I do find myself becoming a creature of habit at times. As much as I pride myself in being unique, I follow convention at times for lack of a better idea. Eventually, though I have liken an allergic reaction to routine. I feel like I will die if I don’t switch things up. A found a few examples from literature that describe my experience. In Carla Speed Mcneil’s Finder there is a character Jaeger who gets seriously ill if he doesn’t get badly injured every so often. I find this fascinating because I feel healthiest eating from dumpsters and foraging for edible weeds, hitch hiking and wandering through the wilderness. Whenever I settle down I begin to self destruct seeming to rot from the inside.

    John 12 Hawk’s books, have characters called “Harlequins” who are mercenaries who make decisions through the use of random number generators.

    I feel a real need for chaos in my life,every so often.

      I understand Ted. If I am in an area for over a year, things begin to stagnate and I feel as though I whither inside. I like to think romantically that it’s my gypsy blood. Somewhere during my development a need for new experiences created a large neural freeway in my brain.

      I am certain this can be rerouted. New experiences and unexpected change support a sharper perception. However this way of being sacrifices other ways of being.

      Perhaps you can counteract your physical stasis with other acts that feed that part of your mind?
