State of Mind

Registered Independents like me aren’t allowed to vote in our state’s primary elections, which gives me a good excuse to  boycott news about the Presidential campaign. Pretty sure who I’ll vote for anyway.

Less news means more time for walks, and to read and think about things.

“The world, we are told, was made especially for man — a presumption not supported by all the facts.”
― John Muir, A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf

“It is no light matter to make up one’s mind about anything .. and once made up, it is even harder to abandon the position. When hypothesis is deeply accepted it becomes a growth which only a kind of surgery can amputate. Thus, beliefs persist long after their factual bases have been removed.”
— John Steinbeck, The Log from the Sea of Cortez
