J.D. Salinger. Icon. These words twist my heart and blow my mind with how precise, bold and delicate they are at the same time! I read this impeccable – no, this MASTERFUL perspective on the human condition a dozen times, each time savoring it as a delicacy.
…you’re going to start getting closer and closer – that is, if you want to, and if you look for it and wait for it – to the kind of information that will be very, very dear to your heart. Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them – if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.
~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
So, I been busy! LOL… Finished school in December. I now can put both M.A. & M.S. behind my name. School was fun, but work. I loved the experience, but missed living, reading, writing and looking within.
I am still in search of meaning…. still reeling, but finding my way, one foot forward, one step back many days. Some days, I glide through it all. Lately, not so much. Looking hopefully forward though. Coming back here will help. Yes, it will help.
I miss you blog!
I’ve been consumed (addicted is more like it) with Social Media i.e. Face Book. Social Media is so cool but it does relegate talking to a forgotten/lost art.
Yeah. The art of talking to communicate may sit sentinel by the dusty tome of Darwin’s long forgotten musings.
Few people have “land-lines” now. Land lines – they are out to sea.
Oh, and goodbye newspapers (and ink-stained fingers).
Goodbye daily Franklin Planners.
