It suddenly occurred to me today that it does no good to be bitter about how this world has turned up, how old values (or at least what's left of my earlier time) have eroded, how decadence has set in. We are but part of this fall, if anything, simply by association of the same race. Sometimes, to change something, akin to conquering a fear, the gradual thing to do is to understand it. And how best to understand something? By simply loving it!
P.S.: Funny how there is a positive spin to this post, even catching me by surprise.
