Under The Sun
They say there's nothing new under the sun, but they're wrong of course.
You can fit everything you see into pre-existing categories, stick your labels all over it, this is this, that is that. And you can live like this, and do it to the whole world, and feel like you know everything, everything, everything, because it all fits in neat boxes on the shelves you've made for all you see.
You never need to consider anything, never need to question anything you hold dear. Everything in its place, and a place for everything.
And then what?
Then this - you live your whole life as a jaded flourish, knowing everything, but considering nothing. You never risk not knowing, never brave the danger of being unsure. And because of this, you miss your life. You can't love a label, and that's all you'll ever have.
Have the courage to be wrong, and you'll find something quite outstanding.
Everything under the sun is new.
