As I think so intensely and complexly, I find the eventual realisation of the simplicity of life and of people a huge come down and let down. I find simplicity quite devastating at times. I feel like I’ve wasted my time, wasted my mind, especially as so much of my thinking is kept internal. I was passing my local church recently and on the sermon board it said ‘Is This It?’ It seems the cold simplicity of life or the dismay of the restrictiveness of living is something that bothers a lot of people.

Does anyone else feel like they set themselves up regularly for frequent come downs to harsh simplicities?
