|A real windbag lands in my driveway.|
"The unexamined life is not worth living." (Apology 38a) Socrates
There is some truth to this critique of me on the YDN posting board yesterday.
I am a good old-fashioned windbag.
After all, there are hundreds of posts in The Anti-Yale over the last two years; that's a lot of wind.
Isn't it the responsibility of the aging to reflect on what all this living has meant?
Consciousness is a crossroads and a filter of history and perspective ----and the last 66 years has been full of things to filter.
It's what's stuck in the filter that's valuable, and what is worth analyzing - - - even if the Yale whippersnappers think I'm the boring Thanksgiving uncle.
Windbag? Yes. Blowhard? No.
PS to the whippersnappers:
I'm not retired and have no plans to be so. And I do NOT "lecture".
