I try to be static. I suppose because it seems safe. All the time the world around me is not static. Therefore there is no real safety in being a static fixture throughout life. Not even my words can remain static. Language is changing, evolving I suppose. This is the best excuse for me to abandon the fight against such change. Water follows the path of least resistance. A life of resistance will wear you down.
There is still a place and a time for resistance. In the course of struggle for freedom and justice. These are principals which demand our attention. But as for the general flow of life, the highs and lows, the tides, the light, and the darkness... These things are a part of the flow and resistance is denies experiencing life.
