The late April news
I hope you all had a fantabulous holiday. For those of you who celebrated Pesach or Easter – I trust it was filled with meaning and family.
I was reading an article in the Mail and Guardian, which quoted a passage from Friedrich Nietzsche’s Gay Science. It resonated so I thought I’d share it: “What if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live it once more and innumerable times more, and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you, all in the same succession and sequence.’ Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus?”
On the bad days I want to hurt the demon, on the good I say bring it on! Never thought of asking myself if my actions or decisions are worthy of a repeat performance.
