I’m writing this at the airport, waiting for my flight to leave.Once upon a time airports were exciting (this was in the time when Ace of Base was the next new thing…). Now, I find myself here, a bit bored.
Once upon another time I would have enjoyed spending an hour (at least!) browsing in the airport book store, leafing through magazines, checking out whether there were any interesting new sci-fi books I would like to have.
It’s a different age now. I have enough unread sci-fi books on my E-reader to last me a lifetime. Computer games (and their associated magazines) don’t particularly interest me anymore. Nothing really to strike my fancy in your average book-store.
And it’s not just book-stores. I used to enjoy going into town, stepping in and out of shops (guy-shops: Electronics, books, toys (when I was a bit younger), bric-a-brac, music. Anything but clothing really…). Now, I’ll go if I need something. Get in, buy, get out, as quick as I can!
I’m still greedy, just not so much anymore for things.
I’m greedy for time, adventure, meaning, beauty, love, knowledge, expression, action, connection. I want more of doing, feeling, experiencing, giving.
There is more than enough left to want. It’s only of having that I have had enough.
I’m Bastiaan. I write this blog to give you some insight into the things I run into and perhaps to inspire you to go in search of your own life extraordinaire.
I love to connect, so if you have thoughts, ideas or questions based on this (or another) post, please leave me a comment!
