“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”
Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

Free-floating content

I've got this thought nagging my every move.

What will happen when I die?

No, not that one — for now.

Instead, what will happen to all my content when I'm gone?

Who knows?

Who cares?

I mean, absent the platforms (where it's located), it won't exist.

Should I do something with it? 

Print it out.
Send it to a secure vault.
Or...stop worrying so much.

I don't know.

Most of it, I'm quite sure, is complete nonsense, and if I was bothered to grub about in the annals of (content) time, I'd be embarrassed to admit that I've contradicted myself so many times it's a wonder I've got the gall to still show up to shout the effing odds. 

Then again, that's life. Nah, not the free-floating anxiety bit but the fact that it's in a constant state of flux.

What do you think?

Is there an answer or should there be any answer to my content conundrum?

I'd love to hear from you.

  • Mon, 19:28: @janhoglund I saw you were reading P. D. Ouspensky today. I've tried but not managed to finish a single book. I wonder why? Thomas Merton. That's another story. Actually, it's Bukowski that still holds my attention.
