Obsession often catches us unaware; before we know it, we are driven toward a path no one could ever suspect, least of all ourselves. Much like complacency, obsession manifests predictable outcomes for the casual observer. Complacency being defined as someone being completely satisfied and obsession defined as someone completely absorbed and preoccupied, make for cozy cousins in my mind.
Something very good came from reading classic short stories in recent months. These are the types of manuscripts that teach us how to write, without instructing us through rote memorization and tedious, time-consuming practice exercises. Experiencing a story is so much better than reading it anyway, which is why we have a treasured library of classics to be studied time and time again.
That’s all for now good people. Until next time, I wish you well!
