STOIC POETRY | Depth is a relative thing

Updated: Sep 4, 2021

I previously imagined that the risk of avoiding risk was shallow on the domestic side, and deep on the personal side; that those who sought their inner course were addressing something somehow more difficult or important (though I know neither is, in any absolute sense). But now I see that the depth is relative to where we choose to swim: shallow where we are and deep where we are not. I see that the depth and danger are a consequence of what we do not address or attend. We may drown where we fail to go. We are lost in what we neglect.


My name is Kurt Bell.

You can learn more about The Good Life in my book Going Alone.

Be safe... But not too safe.
