First, apologies for the lengthy wait between posts.
As you may realize from reading my many posts, I have spent years trying to figure out what to do with my life. I have pondered (weak and weary) and thought (quite loudly at times) and written (most of it privately) and discussed (with the voices in my head) and changed my mind (who's mind do I have now?) so very many times. At this time, I plan to carry on my current plans and not change anything. But I also also don't rule out changing my mind again. The reason for this is that I realized I have been asking the wrong question all of this time.
Old question: What do I want to do with my life?
Proper question: How do I want the world to change and what can I do about it?
There are many things I care deeply about: children, education, becoming a multi-planetary species, finding and creating beauty, nurturing a positive philosophy, among many others. Based on this and all of the other discussions I've had with myself, I need to answer: how do I want the world to change? What do I want the world to be like?
Right now, I don't have an answer. I don't know when I'll have that answer. But I'll share it here when I do.
