Life is Good

I was just mixing an instant coffee and thinking about life.

Man, it's pretty good huh? It's easy to take for granted and forget the ridiculous amazing technology that we use all the time that gives us access to almost all of the information ever uncovered in human history. We can talk long distances for free to anyone with an internet connection. You can get high quality everything for damn cheap by historical standards.

That's not even getting into the general beauty of seeing a cat bat a little ball around, or how the world smells after a rainstorm, or trees, or eating raw sliced pumpkin (try it), or whatever.

And then there's so many people in the world you can connect with, building good friendships, working with people, improving things, building more, reading books.

Life's really good.

The Good Enough Life

On Mike Dariano

In the evening we drive to our good enough homes in our good enough cars and park in our good enough garages. We eat good enough meals made with good enough ingredients at our good enough tables and chairs. We sit on our good enough couches with good enough cocktails watching good enough sitcoms starring at good enough actors reading good enough scripts.

We help our good enough kids with their homework so they can earn good enough grades to go to a different good enough school and focus on a good enough subject to get a good enough job.

We sleep in our good enough beds and dream good enough dreams. When we wake we look at our good enough bodies and eat a good enough breakfast before heading to our good enough jobs.

We do good enough work for good enough pay. We're good enough to our co-workers and good enough to our bosses. During meetings we offer good enough contributions to good enough projects that have good enough outcomes. We make good enough sales of our good enough services and offer good enough service on those good enough sales.

After work we go to good enough malls and buy good enough stuff to wear or watch before we drive to our good enough homes in our good enough cars and park in our good enough garages.
