What are you committed to?


Everybody has them

Some more

Some fewer

Some noble

Some futile

Some expensive

Some necessary

Some moral

Some imposed

Some healthy

Some neurotic



Everybody has commitments

Almost all by choice


What would my life be like without





I’d probably have to be committed

Yes indeed! Our lives must be purpose-driven in order to avoid a sense of futility... or does being driven by our purpose make us feel futile? Perhaps I need to be committed before I find out!? :)) xx

You are getting close with that last line. ;-)

My commitment may yet get me committed - or at least arrested. Some nasty person called the cops on me yet again as I lurked in the shadowy bushes attempting to catch Shadow.
