I’m short on time this morning (because work) and while I am trying to make that happen less (I’ll think on it some more this weekend), I don’t like not spending a little time in the mornings sitting with this keyboard. So while I don’t have the time to say much, I thought I would post this poem by Stephen Crane, because it is something that I think about a lot, especially when things are a little difficult. I have always found it to be freeing and stoically beautiful.

A Man Said to the Universe

A man said to the universe:

“Sir, I exist!”

“However,” replied the universe,

“The fact has not created in me

A sense of obligation.”
