"The unexamined life is not worth living" Socrates

all in my mind

There are days when there is only confusion, verging on despair here, but every now and then the planets align, and in those moments, I play little mind-games, like this one for example:

I conjure up a younger Halle, sipping on a coffee, sinking down into her 'comfy chair' as the guy with the façade paces around and asks some of his really silly questions, like:

What is it like to be you? 
Do you wake up in the morning to a different thought each day, not the same one like I do? 
Does your brain still have noise, or is it really, really quiet and serene? 
Why can't I just be like you?

Putting on a serious look, and waiting just a bit to let him think these are hard questions, she tilts her head a bit, and smiles, then replies:

Some of these things would fix themselves if you would let them.
For the others, you already know the answers.

You are a good person.

Be yourself.

How did she get so wise?


  1. Maybe she GOT wise and became aware of true facts and circumstances.

  2. So quiet and serene it is spooky and I hardly know what to do with the time which used to be wasted on feeling miserable.

    Perhaps she is thinking the same...

  3. She got so wise by being herself. Methinks it is better to be a wise woman than a wise man. Planetary alignment and epiphany are are all good.

  4. I like Peggy's comment and I envy the quiet and serene Caroline.

    Nice post, Halle.
