I went to the ren


I went to the ren faire today, where I watched some jousting, some medieval performances and ate good food. As much fun as the ren faire is, it does leave a person extremely tired, sweaty, and covered in dust and dirt.

I picked up a new book at the bookstore today: The Five People You Meet in Heaven, which I devoured in about an hour and a half. The story is about a man named Eddie, who believes he lives a meaningless life, dies, goes up to heaven, where he is visited by 5 people from his past, which makes him re-examine his life from other perspectives.

I don't want to live a meaningless life -- I think that would errode my spirit, day after day. I don't think anyone really plans on having a meaningless life, nor do I believe that any life is truly without meaning.

When I think about my life, it's a pretty charmed one, and honestly I don't really have any right to complain about all the little things in my life -- I know there are people out there whose lives are in far worse shape, where my problems are the problems of those with far too much leisure time.
