It’s been a little slow on the blog these days. It seems like there’s not much time to sit and ponder and articulate all of the ideas in my head. But, rest assured, there are ideas in there! I’ve been meaning to start a new feature on my blog for the past several months, but just haven’t gotten around to it. So, while Madeline plays with her cousins here in the basement and we wait for Luke to wake up so we can go to the park, I thought this would be a good time to share: The Tao of Dixie.
Mostly The Tao is a way of giving examples of the dialectic/balance of life that we experience everyday but often don’t notice. Some of it will be deep, some of it will be funny, and some will most definitely be bizarre. But, hopefully this will be a vehicle for me to clarify all of these “Hegelian” thoughts that live in my brain and emit themselves rather obscurely in this space.
So here is “#1 in The Dialectic of Life”:
Men may never as beautiful as women, but they will also never be as ugly.
(Proof is here. Look at the father and the mother. The mother starts off beautiful but you really notice her aging. The father, on the other hand, just does not age.)
