On Human Suffering

20131220-090633.jpg

If ignorance of the Law is of no excuse, how much more ignorance of Life?

I think this is why we suffer so, our indifference, cultured in 9 – 5’s and other distractions, to what is beautiful about life; a teenage girl’s smile, the way a woman leans into a man she loves, a child’s little hand in its mother’s palm, the moon on a night of fullness, music in a language unheard of before. . .

To be ignorant of these things, of Life in all its variety, is to without an excuse suffer. And so we suffer. #sigh
