Sense & Nonsense...

David Byrne and Talking Heads once told us: "Stop Making Sense" (1984).

Exactly. I woke up with these words on the tip of my tongue this morning: "It doesn't make any sense."

Why? 

Various reasons. Events and circumstances near & far.

And it's true, oftentimes it doesn't make sense. And really it doesn't have to. 

Sometimes what "is" just "is." Reality is our teacher. And reality is bigger, more comprehensive, than us. We will learn or not. We can learn the easy way, or the hard way, but we will learn one way or another.

And learning doesn't mean it's all gonna be sensible.  Or common-sensical. 

This is all even before we get to our fellow Human Beings. A tricky, complicated, bifurcated, contradictory, unwieldy, unruly, hairy lot.

Yikes. People are freaking tricky. It's been proven over and over and over. And we are stuck with sense, non-sense & sensibility. All quite challenging.
