i sat on a couch watching avengers with some old friends last night.
and by watching avengers, i mean i was working my way through the age-old “meaning of life” question.
i just kept getting stopped at the idea that everything we as humans do is about occupying our brain. everything! waking or sleeping, our brain is made to be occupied. it’s doing so much. i’m not strictly meaning entertainment. our brain is always doing something.
which brought me to death. no wonder we die. our brain is going for so long without a break. that thing deserves to power off.
which brought me to “why does anything matter”
and progeny and evolution and origin and corporate thoughts and actions.
and the girls just kept talking about God’s plan. and it made me more frustrated because that only adds to the problem of occupying our brain. it solves nothing.
i’m boring myself with writing this, but i was really into it last night.
no fewer than six children asked to watch opera today.
this week the K-ers at my school are doing “L” words. kindergarten is as good a time as any to introduce samuel ramey.
i have an interview on sunday: K-5 music.
it’s in a ‘burb halfway between where i went to school and OKC; ‘tis prime spot for resources.
