"To be, or not to be, that is the question-
whether 'tis nobler in the minder to suffer..."
When Shakespeare wrote these words uttered by Prince Hamlet, Hamlet was contemplating death and suicide, the sorrows and unfairness of life.
However, those words resonate with me daily. It is the daily question of my quest to live life completely aware of my choices, my actions, my being.
It is the mantra of achieving a self that is true to no one else but you and me. It is my desire to accept myself as this soup of contradictions, of changed minds, of half finished projects, of accomplishments.
To be means to accept it is ok to change my mind about an idea, to quit something or someone who is not adding anything of value, it is today be informed and politically engaged and tomorrow...well, tomorrow not to give a shit about politics.
To be is to exist in true alignment with right now.
Project: I am working on a "living" world map. It is the itinerary of my hubby's and my life, from when we were born to when we met to the places we experienced together. The map is by no means accurate. It was drawn free hand, but I did want to use the Gall-Peters projection map as reference, which is a more accurate scale of the geographic size of continents in the world.
