I have decided to start a blog about books I've read or am reading. And I guess this is it...
The other night I read an old copy of Sweet Dreams and it brought out the giggly bimbo in me. Oh how I miss those teenage years full of flirting... (wink wink)
Last night was I was feeling a tad more intellectual so I started reading an excerpt from Plato's The Republic. And it struck me (as it does about once a week) how pitiful a state our country is in. According to Mr. Plato the state must be wise, brave, temperate and just, with emphasis on justice. To him justice is minding one's own business and not meddling with other men's concerns . Its does not mean being uncaring and self-absorbed, rather it means fulfilling you proper function in society. To him artists should make art and legislators should make laws. Reversing roles or doing something against your nature is an injustice. Well then I say, the world is full of injustice today.
But hey, I'm a fine one to talk when I am still totally confused as to what nature has designed me to be. Maybe I was designed to be full of contradictions just so I can have an excuse to go flitting from one job to the next all my life. I was designed to explore and not just be one thing! Now nobody can dare make me stay put coz that will be an injustice. : )
