Transition.

November 3, 2008

The transition from here to there is nothing. The transition from now to later is nothing. So why is a birthday something? Celebrating one more year of experience? A reminder one is one year closer to dying? An excuse to have people other than yourself boost your ego? I really have no idea what a birthday is. My closest guess is that a birthday is a day of speculation, just like all other days, but this day serves as a reminder of all the days of speculation that have past and have yet to come. This guess abides by the earthly laws of time, so it only applies to the daily life of the average unconscious human being. For the thinker the guess translates to a day to speculate about speculation. So I’m going to spend this November 3rd speculating about my speculation. Goodbye.
