The really good magic trick .
Woody Allen, I think it was, lamented “life is so daily.” Considering the alternative, I vote for daily life. However, the repetition of ongoing tasks and chores required by daily life often tricks me into thinking and feeling that I am not really living.
As one Covid-19 infected day merges into the next, and the next, and the next, ad infinitum, I am learning this: an adrenaline high doesn’t equate to really living. Having said that, here comes an “Ah-Ha” lightbulb. The name of the game is becoming independent from outside stimulation. Using my mind to generate an adrenaline high from the inside is the WOW POW magic act that transforms the dailyness of it all from boring grind to interesting and entertaining.
