GOING ALONE - The drive to fill the moments

0 comments

A benefit of solitude in wild places is the expanse of time and space wherein our thinking can really stretch its wings in wonder. I made this video at breakfast two weeks ago while watching the desert dawn unfold into quiet empty. The thing I call "The Great Indifference" (it's an imaginary idea from my book) could be seen out there twenty miles distant in the Bullion Mountains, which fact provoked thoughts of how we try to comfort ourselves from the universe's deep empty with reassuring thoughts of forever. It's a curious game we play to mask what apparently really isn't. A curious game indeed.

  • I didn't go to the desert this week... Emily and I needed to take care of some things together and I stayed home instead. I'm glad I didn't go...though part of me thinks I'm just rationalizing away my disappointment in not facing down my fears out there - as I always have fears "out there." My out there is always someplace I'm reluctant to go - though usually I go, often not as far or deep as I'd like...but I go. How far did you go this week or month? Did you push past the place you'd normally turn back? At what price or consequence? I'll have my chance again in another two weeks... I'll go far then, I think - though I never really know for sure. I'll go far then, I think - as far as the simple man I am can muster. #GoingAlone
  • The bullseye aim suggests there's a target, yet offers no promise we'll hit the mark. I'll strive for the aim without expecting more than my best possible result. In fact, I'll expect sometimes to utter fail the mark.
ABOUT

Going Alone was begun by Kurt Bell in an effort to help others understand and manage  the recognition of the apparent indifference of the universe to our well being, happiness or even our existence, and to find ways to make a good life in spite of this fact.
