Running Dialogue- Part 3

by Jim Morgan

#34 I envisioned this piece as a navel-gazing type of piece wherein I try to solve some of the issues in my life by getting them out on paper. In case you haven’t figure it out yet I have some rules which I try to follow while writing this. Not that I have totally succeeded…

#35 I really do feel the world closing in on me. I do tend towards depression, or at least I have done so in the past. I wonder if I haven’t simply outgrown those depressive tendencies some. Usually optimism guides my day. My smart mouth does overrun my brain capacity sometimes.

#36 With all the vicious attacks hurled at me here of late I developed a little bit of a siege mentality. I find it difficult to resist the urge to believe that I work myself to death so that the rest of the world can do whatever the hell they want to do when they want to do it.

#37 I’ve made it this far and haven’t discussed anything of merit or importance. Have I truly become this mundane and trivial? Don’t answer that, I think I’d prefer the safety of my own delusions and I don’t want you to mess that up. My delusions have merit beyond your judgment.

#38 We all look for a key that will open the doors of mystery for us and reveal grand truths and meanings. I find nothing wrong with you, just go be you. Why do we keep searching endlessly for answers that we already inherently possess? I think we don’t believe it’s that easy.

#39 Even though scientists & philosophers try to make the world a big confusing mess, when it comes to the nutcutting the world runs on very simple principles. These prove difficult to explain, especially to folks expecting complications. Expecting? Most of us make complications.
