Realigning My Priorities

There is this line in Tombstone where Wyatt asks what makes men act the way they do. Doc tells him that there’s a hole so deep down the middle of some people that they’ll never be able to steal, kill or hurt enough to fill it. I’ve got one of those holes too. A lot of people I know do. Most of us figure that because our efforts are productive that somehow makes them less desperate. It doesn’t.

At least, asPalahniuk wrote, Doc’s people have taken some control over their fate. At least they’ve got an inkling that something might be wrong. I don’t think you can say the same about the graduating Law class of 2008 or the queen of the crazies. I don’t want to be one of them.

They are two totally separate pursuits – production and peace. And the former will not create the later.
