sometimes you just gotta' row

same step, different day

someone recently shared a Portuguese homily with me, which counsels the virtue of leaving things as they are: “the more you stir it, the worse it smells” the saying goes.

one problem with this philosophy is without knowing where to apply the shovel there is a risk of stepping into the same pile again and again. aka: a symptom of insanity, doing the same thing over again and expecting something different to occur. the metaphorical stink provides a means of identity. a flag.

methinks Socrates’ view, while somewhat zealous, “the unexamined life is not worth living”, makes more sense for a life limited by time.
