Some infinite thing


"The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over ... The alternative is unconsciousness, the default-setting—the constant gnawing sense of having had and lost some infinite thing."—David Foster Wallace

The photo is from Jake's Treasure Beach, a magical corner of Jamaica. I'm dreaming of being there, and waking up to the infinite sea, and the shades of blue in that room.

  3. Thank you for sharing your ocean dreams of Jamaica. Thank you for the respite experienced while looking at the photo with the shades of blue.

  4. Ah you remind me why I so love the ocean and the sky, that infinite thing. The David Foster Wallace quote is the opposite of what our daily news cycle reports everyday. We live in a seriously unconscious time.
