Someone asked me the other night if I was in deep soul searching or if I was just in a shallow phase. I replied, “Shallower, I don’t want to drown yet.”
We all try to cling to the sides of a raging wave pool, grasping for a semblance of control. We let go from time to time only to find ourselves flapping our arms to cling to the sides.
Shallow is a way of life. It demands that you do not take things seriously. It also demands that you do not take the risk of letting go to get out of the norm.
