Stop wandering about! You aren’t likely to read your own notebooks, or ancient histories, or the anthologies you’ve collected to enjoy in your old age. Get busy with life’s purpose, toss aside empty hopes, get active in your own rescue - if you care for yourself at all - and do it while you can.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 3.14
Now is the time for doing. The time for reading is done.
The answers aren’t found in another text…
… they’re found in each decision and choice we make.
When Death comes for me, I don’t want Her to catch me reading. I want her to catch me doing.
(An end has come… and so has a beginning.)
I’ll be making one final post within the next week or so, after I’ve had some time to sit with finishing this past year of introspective learning. I’ll be sure to post links to the final entry on Facebook and Twitter.
When I make that final post, I’ll express my gratitude for y’all then.
Rev. Wm. E. Ashton, ADF
