Rethinking and writing

Saturday, June 13, 2009

Every so often in life I think it’s a good time to hit the delete key. Do a  hard reset and just start over. I think it’s about time again. I don’t know if you call it turning a page, starting a new chapter, closing the door, or maybe even repentance.

I think it’s about realizing that you’ve learned something, you’ve moved past things, or you’ve changed the way you look at the world. Whenever you have a monumental shift in your thinking or your worldview, every other smaller thing changes shape when seen through a new lens. That’s where I’m at right now. Seeing things for the first time all over again.

I think a lot about big things, really BIG things. I just don’t let go of ideas. I wrestle with them, argue with them… I beat the crap out of them until they make sense to me and fit into the larger scheme of things. Whenever I learn something that jars with what I think I know, all of my preconceived notions are subject to be tossed out the window. I don’t dig in covering my eyes and ears stomping my feet. I am entirely convinced that everything I think I know may be wrong.

At present I’ve been rethinking a lot. I haven’t been writing much. I have been busy, but really I just haven’t known what to say. I’m far from having things hammered out, but I see something in the distance starting to take shape. The most exciting thing of all is that I know I’m not the only one who sees it. I’d like to take some time to write a little about where I’m at and what I’m wrestling with. Maybe you are too.
