what’s madness?

Here’s a commercial for North Face.

But….it’s a good one, and it raises the question…or provides the instruction….to question “madness”.

What’s madness?

Is it pursuing an obsession to a crazy degree? Doing things that don’t make sense to most of the world? Doing crazy stuff?

Or….is it living the life of “quiet desperation”?

My life is beautiful….my job is good.

What do I have to worry or complain about?

Nothing, really.

(My job is really good….kind of hard, but….really good. I case my mail and then go drive around out in the country and bring it to the people. That’s a good thing. I’ve worked in a cubicle….worn a tie all day….so driving around out in the woods is a good thing….I know that.)

I think what’s crazy is how much it chafes to be on someone else’s schedule all the time.

But….again, but…they pay me to do that.

They rent me….and I let them.

Being “out there”….a new breeze on my cheek….ocean wind and falling water…..gershhhhhhhhh.

We need an adventure soon.
