Project Athena - Day 158 (Micro/Macro)

The Core of the Issue

With an apple I will astonish Paris.
— Paul Cezanne

Have you ever felt like you have lost your way in the world? I am feeling this strongly over the last few weeks. While I have lots of strategies to avoid the emotional impact of being without clear direction or purpose, I am choosing not to employ them. Despite the rawness of feeling existentially insignificant, I am not seduced into numbing out or going into action overdrive. I would rather face the real terror of "being lost"...of nonexistence, than cover it up with a warm, fuzzy blanket or jump into some new adventure that I will lose passion for 20 seconds into it.

What does this have to do with closeups of apples? Hmmm. Diving into the core.
