“All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
I started reading another book on the plane ride back from Dallas this morning and came across this quote. While I certainly don’t think it is ‘true’ in an actual sense I do think it is true in the sense that if we stop doing things that excite and intrigue us we might as well be dead. If we are not experiencing new things and consistently challenging ourselves mentally then a little piece of us dies – that piece that daydreamed as a child about what could be – all the great experiences in life that were possible. To me being ‘boring’ is having to do the same thing over and over again – even if you work on an assembly line or something where the job is repetitive it doesn’t mean you have to do the same thing day-over-day. Don’t get stuck in a rut, keep evolving and keep living.
Photo of the Day – St. James Church, Seattle Washington
The interior of the St. James Church drew my eye right away – the exterior of the church while large wasn’t as pristine as the inside. Luckily, I did some pre-scouting before I went out there and I knew the interior was pretty cool looking. On a cold, wet rainy day it beat sitting in my hotel wishing the weather would change.
