‘The future’s just a fucking concept that we use to avoid being alive today.’
– Brenda, Six Feet Under
That is so completely true. And I really need to get a handle on that notion, and stop waiting for a different situation or a different time. Although there are some things that just can’t happen until something else (known or unknown) changes. And when that thing is known, but its enforcement is still pending, then we must wait for the future and put the present on hold.
It sure as hell sucks, but life just happens that way.
