Too much of Everything

There’s too much that we can access. Legally and otherwise; surplus has become a problem of sorts. The speed of access is (almost) inversely proportional to the rate at which we can absorb what we access. Interestingly we focus on access rather than absorption.

Our ability – to have it – has become a better determinant of what we know – rather than what we know.

I’ve got no deeds to do, no promises to keep
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me

Before you download the next thing, read, listen, watch what you downloaded a while ago.

  1. This is what I was describing a while back on Twitter when you shared a couple of good links 🙂 I think over the last two years, I am improving in keeping that elusive balance between acquisition and absorption. We are blessed that we live in such an age of abundance!
