Noted American writer David Foster Wallace concludes that “It is unimaginably hard… to stay conscious and alive in the adult world day in and day out.” We all know these challenges. At least those of us who are trying to live our lives fully awake, or as awake as we are able to be… Wallace rants, “simple awareness; awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time, that we have to keep reminding ourselves over and over.” Ain’t it the truth?
