I’m moving places again. What used to be a source of pride, not being weighed down by anything and anyone, is becoming a nuisance.
The joy of discovering the unfamiliar, learn, train and enlargen one’s knowledge of it, then moving on to the next and letting the “old” quickly fizzle out - that has been a driving force in my life. Yet I have seldom experienced true mastery in any discipline, something to be passionate about and knowledgeable enough to carry deep conversations about. I am longing to change that.
I have begun planting roots, becoming involved beyond the temporary, embracing the mundane and familiar. But I must be careful to not let the pendulum swing too far into the other direction, being too content with the current state of affairs and closed off to meeting new people and insights.
