I’ve been trying to write for weeks now, and I just sit in front of the screen — without anything to say.
Now, that I’ve entered this new, odd world, inundated by science, I feel exhausted by the end of the day. It takes work to refocus the way I view the world — to see it with the eyes of a scientist. And then when I find the time to reflect on what I have learned, what I have felt, what I have sensed, my thoughts fall away.
On my desktop sits a quotation that serves as a daily reminder of what I need to do. It comes from one of the greatest thinking men in history, and it says, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”
I agree, so I’m going to cut the shit and start thinking again.
