‘Modern’… Really?

Yearning for what is in, what is in vogue…

To be with it and longing to belong,

Aching to see, say & show it first…

To beat others…Oh, the insatiable thirst;

Divorced from depth n cut from contemplation…

Unfailing in following the fashionable n fashion,

Craving for admiration from known and unknown…

Living in the reflected glory and shadow of opinion;

Itching to impress with the idiotic n inane…

Caressed by the crudities and the vain,

Eager to embrace the frivolous and banal…

Pseudo is seduced by the souls shallow n small.

Russel’s wit is unsparing:

“The belief that fashion alone should dominate opinion has great advantages. It makes thought unnecessary and puts the highest intelligence within the reach of everyone”

Joie De Vivre ! "....to front only the essential facts of life, and see if i could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when i came to die, discover that i had not lived. ....to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life...to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms. " - Henry David Thoreau
