Are You Turned On?

Via on Nov 11, 2011

“I am very concerned with the fact that so many people turn off because it is easier;

that they don’t stay fully aware during the course of their lives, in all the choices they make:

social, economic, political, aesthetic. They turn off because it is easier.

But I find that anything less than

absolutely full, dangerous participation

is an absolute waste of some rather valuable time.”

~ Edward Albee

 

Are you turned on? Are you awake to the possibilities that this second holds for you?

Or have you shut down for the night?

For the week? For good?

Don’t wait until everything is perfect.

Don’t wait until you are sure of your next move.

Wake up!

It’s time for “absolutely full, dangerous participation” in your life.

The only time you have is right now.

    Up, coffee in hand, absolutely full, dangerous participation switched on, eyes like headlights. Thanks for rocking my morning/noon after a long night's work.
