what I really need to know. . .

. . .besides whether I should get that tattoo or not. . .(for which I’m still waiting on consensus thankyouverymuch). . .

is whether it is possible to resolve the fundamental paradox between wanting to live in the moment and feeling some kind of obligation to strive for something better/more relevant/a way to make the world a better place?

Who’s happier? Whose life has more meaning? Are these even relevant questions?

My husband, being the musical geek type that he is (bless his sweet little heart), made a Schenkerian comparison between life lived in the foreground with an ongoing awareness of if not an actual influence imposed by the background.

Yeah. Something like that.

But it still doesn’t help me decide if, when I get up tomorrow morning with an unexpected few hours on my hands, I should do yoga, take a bath, and read my book, or if I should write the article I’ve been meaning to write or start planning the seminar I’m beginning to teach NEXT FRIDAY.
