The Path Less Pondered
It might not seem like it but there is far more pondering going on in my head than ever makes its way to a post.
Preposterous, you say? Well, it's true. I do abide by a self-edit panel within my brain as I imagine each of us maintain. Or at least that is my attempt. I don't say it works perfectly. It does have issues on occasion. Things can certainly go wonky beyond the grounds of the ActiveRain playground. That's for sure.
But as an overall rule and standard operating procedure, I prohibit certain pondering to travel from that "safe place".
I thought about it the other day, actually it happens on many days. Just because I think it, does not necessarily mean "it" will show up in a post. Or spoken. Or communicated in any sort of way.
If you give people nothingness,
they can ponder
what can be achieved
by that nothingness.
It is somewhat ironic that this is the quote I found for this post as it seemed rather familiar to me. I searched the author Tadao Ando and even his biography(an architect) looked as if I had researched it previously.
Hmm, could this pondering be taking a toll on me? Thanks to the AR search function, I inserted my name along with the name of the author and indeed, found that same quote. It was, I guess not-so-coincidentally, a pondering post(from October 2017) but not exactly the same theme as this one.
I liked it then and I like the quote now. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Pondering and all. . . History repeats itself at times. Lots of things do. . .
