Thoughts for Thursday – Ti(red)

Tomorrow is my birthday — well, anti-birthday. I refuse to have a birthday this year. Theoretically.

As birthdays do, this one got me to reflecting upon the year past. It seems to me that the American culture in general has gone into hyperspeed. I don’t think I’m the only person who feels that way, either.

How it affects me is that I do not have time (or energy) to reflect and think, and that in turn affects my quality of life. (I can even see a degradation in my blog posts over the past dozen months, from lengthy and rather complex to quick and dirty.) What to do to change the dynamic…? Answer is not clear yet.

First things first: I’m taking a few days off. I’ll be doing some fun things to celebrate my anti-birthday (yes, you can still celebrate, even if it’s an anti-birthday) and generally slacking.

So, see you soon. Until my next post, here is a link you might enjoy perusing.

    I’d love to hear you write more about this idea of American culture going into hyperdrive…I have my own fixed opinions about the US (as a happy expat) and am always on the lookout for thoughful reflections by people who still live there.Happy Anti-Birthday!
