Touching The Void.
I have been out of action for a while - out of action, that is, in regards to the blogoshpere. There have been a number of events that have occurred in my life over the last few months that have given me pause to indulge in a little bit of self-examination, re-assessment, and all of the other little awakenings and shake-ups that come from adversity. I guess it's one of the pitfalls of having an over-active existential bent. I suppose that the benefit of all this is that as one comes through adversity one has the chance to learn from it, and so also grow and be better prepared for the next sequence of misadventure and tribulation. Of course, as one experiences the downside of life one must confront it with the only reasonable response that any self-respecting existential philospher can make: WHATEVER!
