Our Mundane Lives and Choosing

It’s rare that I share something on this blog, mostly because I abhor the cheap, easy, and trite things that get shared on social media. I may start doing this more and more as life here in Nashville becomes more mundane and pedestrian. I strive to not fall into that repetitive rut, but the gravitational pull of familial life is strong and consistent.

If you sometimes feel the same way, I hope this video will help. It was shared by someone in my men’s book club (yep, they do exist), and based on a commencement address by David Foster Wallace, it echoes some of the themes we’re reading about in our current book. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts, good or bad. Warning – you may have to think deeply for about 9 minutes.

  1. I LOVE this address by Wallace and am so thankful for the legacy of this message which he left us. This must be at least one of the things Jesus meant when he said, “Stay awake.” (i.e., not just a Biblical endorsement for the consumption of vast quantities of coffee)
