Maybe it’s an overstatement

An overstatement to question and acknowledge that the world we live in is a sparse one, unbridled by the temptations that consume us. How can we see and breathe all these marvelous wonders if we are left to our own electronic devices? I often see no recourse with these types of things, that is we are sometimes unable to make do and compromise on the beliefs that most strongly transfix us, this is why I type away, unsure of where to really begin.

I also am just a bit unsure why individuals in this phase of life really choose to judge my own decisions, why can’t I just live life accordingly under more beautiful principles, unaffected by what is right and what is wrong? Somewhere out there I can comment on Gravity’s Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon’s book, but the elements of philosophical danger still elude me and I recognize that I am falling into prey, that I can no longer stand to see and breathe what used to be my own destiny.
