Our life—

Updated: Aug 9



I'd stay where I am, like those before me, and those who are now with me. It is the smart thing to do. To settle down with work, and buy a home, and find a special someone to help fill the home with memories, and children perhaps to help pass the time. I will work, and I will rest, and we will laugh and smile and sometimes cry. And we will grow old and help parents to pass while sensing our own passage to come. And we will call this life: a good life, a well-lived life, an enjoyed life—our life.

The risk of going And the risk of staying In both directions The scale must tip

I'd go where I will, like others before me, and possibly alone—at least for now. It's the smart thing to do. To move on and find work where I can, and live where I will, and make memories with those along the way, with children perhaps to help to pass the time. I will work, and I will rest and we will laugh and smile and sometimes cry. And we will grow old and help others to pass while sensing our own passage to come. And we will call this life: a good life, a well-lived life, an enjoyed life—our life.

My name is Kurt Bell.

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.
