“I took a speed-reading course and read ‘War and Peace’ in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.” –Woody Allen
We, editorially speaking, wish you to know, Dear Reader, that editing our electronic opus in quest of real elation, is taking forever, metaphorically. So reading it for the same reason takes no time, literally.
“Transmitted at the speed of light, all events on this planet are simultaneous. In the electric environment of information all events are simultaneous, there is no time or space separating events.” –Marshall McLuhan
In no time, we expect the reading to produce the same result as the writing.
“Real elation is when you feel you could touch a star without standing on tiptoe.” –Doug Larsen
Beyond that, we take nothing in the temporal world too seriously,
“Don’t take life too seriously, you will never get out alive.” –Elbert Hubbard
and scatter pearls of wisdom, in our opinion, on why we are here and how to survive it in good humor.
“Don’t Worry Be Happy” –Bobby McFerren
When there is nothing else you would rather do than laugh with the gods, metaphorically, and all of time to do it now, literally, perhaps you will find our nonfiction fable here. Just don’t read it too fast.
“I just got out of the hospital. I was in a speed-reading accident. I hit a bookmark.” –Steven Wright
For instant relief in the everyday, you could follow this blog (there’s a widget at the top of the sidebar), share quotes you might find insightful and relevant, peruse the art and watch the videos. Today’s feature, Mexico Mexico, plays on this page. The featurette, Speedbumps from Mexico, plays on The Art in the Everyday page. The subject of the art appearing in both is actual speed bumps, which the artist literally bumped into on a pilgrimage in Mexico. The videos are metaphors of Mexico’s indomitable beauty.
