This week’s musing (courtesy of the BookCrazy Yahoo! group) asks…
Below is a link to an NPR discussion about the simple fact that there’s no way you can read, see and experience all the things that are available to be experienced. The two methods for dealing with it are culling (i.e., cutting out certain genres that don’t interest you, etc.) or surrender (i.e., just making peace with the facts and enjoying what you can in the time that you have).
So, do you cull, or do you surrender? Or do you do both?
I definitely surrender. I try to see, read, experience everything I can, I don't limit myself. I know I'll miss lots of things, but I prefer to accept that. I'll give things a try even if they don't necessarilly interest me, because books, movies, etc. have a way of surprising you. You never know what wonderful things you'll discover.
