Today was filled with conversations, about people who had it good but didn't make the most of it. Equilibrium may be shocking, or relieving, depending on which side of the imbalance one was previously on. Nature is not a force to be reckoned with. Only the predicate, "what is Y, the nature of X?," retains its value. That is metaphysics, upon which ethics is contingent. The question of ethics is simply, "given Y, what Z do we do?"
This week's CEO style: tank driver.
Sneak around. Sprint. Get gunners into position. Yell at everyone. Apologise for the geraniums. Report position. Call air strike. GTFO. Try not to get blown up. Ok, enough procrastinating... time to get out of bed.
This is how I react to media asking to feature the cafe:
1. Cafes are boring.
2. You should talk to the staff, about their personal motivations. It makes a better story, and ffs... cafes are really boring.
3. People make better subjects for stories. You must ask them what they want, how they are trying to get it, and later if they discovered it was the right or wrong way to go about it. We have 30 staff, we have 19 shareholders, talk to them.
4. Cafes are really fuckin boring. Plz. Plz...
I've grown used to planning my life in 10-year chunks, and punching through the days on a 10-second basis. I enjoy the relationship between the very big, and the very small. Somewhere in between, most people find a way of living that I tend to write off as being rather temporary. We will all pass away. smile emoticon
