Good old time has gone by, and it has helped me live with more clarity and precision. A lot of this has to do with what can be thrown away to lighten the heaviness of living. As one grows, I think, the essential life emerges, pushing away all that you once thought was needed, even indispensable. I have realized that comparison is banal, and success deeply superfluous. That a lot of times, nothing much needs to be said. That it is not necessary to admire people but only sufficient to like them and that the simplest reasons for liking them, are usually the strongest. There is no reason to find 'right' ways of enjoying oneself, any which way is fine and that your deepest joys and sorrows are really you own, they cannot be shared, no matter how hard you try.
