its foolish for one to believe their words could be so profound as to shape a movement, to inspire a generation or to relay a deeper understanding of the human essence… maybe its ok for one to believe their words can inspire deeper thinking, closer analysis, or questioning of a thing.
in the last few weeks i have engaged with friends who all seem to be going through a similar phase in their life. i started to think the economy was causing people to re-think who they are and what they wanted from life, but the more i experienced the exchange with friends i gathered the phenomena wasn’t reflective of the larger society but that of a generation.
we are a generation of seekers yet to realize for what we are searching.
content is not concept we grasp and settled is not a paradigm we understand. we strive for more, for greater, for better? but is there truly an end in sight for where we aim to land? i find i am still striving, still driving, still aiming for the next “best” thing… the thing that will make me feel settled, make my soul content; i search for the thing that will make me search no more.
truly my destination, and that of many in my generation, continues to be: unknown.
