Thinking aka meditating

I just found an aphorism on Marian Van Eyk's Elderwoman blog that resonates with what other blogs have said on the blogs I have been browsing this evening:

They say the unexamined life is not worth living, however the unlived life is not worth examining.

Most people I know are indeed living their lives quite fully -- which is not the same as constant multitasking. But every now and then I run into someone either in person or through their writing, sometimes on blogs, sometimes in other venues, who seem to have done relatively little living and certainly little self-examination. That is very sad.
