Life and Other Absurdities

So, do you think this post is going to talk about all the horrible things that have occurred? How I have been wronged, turned against, dealt with pain and loss? Of course! Have I dealt with the pain of family members is failing health, where I have no power? Have I hit my head against the wall over and over? Well, those things will have to be addressed in another post for another day!

Life is STILL absurd, however! The definition of absurd is as follows:

1: ridiculously unreasonable, unsound, or incongruous <an absurd argument>2: having no rational or orderly relationship to human life : meaningless <an absurd universe>; also : lacking order or value <an absurd existence>3: dealing with the absurd or with absurdism <absurd theater>
Oh wait, am I saying life is MEANINGLESS????  It has no VALUE?  Wow!  Maybe this post WILL be a downer, huh?  Heavy, really!
But, I guess what I really wanted to communicate today that even if/when life is absurd, there is always SOMETHING that brings hope into your day.  There is something or someone whose path you will cross or a joke your kid will tell or a miraculous creation that God exposes to you that suddenly slaps you in the face and you realize there IS order in life, there IS something of value to hold, there IS meaning to aim your heart toward.  And that, my friends, may seem fleeting at times, but is exists.  And I hope you are exposed to it today so you can feel it as well.  And I will remind myself that too as I struggle through the muck that is my life as well!
Gina, Philosopher, Out!

  1. Ginastotle,

    If you haven’t already, read Ecclesiastes. It’s one of my favorite books. Realy sums up nicely this “life under the sun.”
