I Don’t Wanna

I don’t want to read another editorial. I don’t want to watch another uplifting video. I don’t want to take part in another social media “challenge.”

There’s work to do, though I don’t really want to do that either. I don’t want to organize enrichment activities for my child. I don’t want to cook or clean. I don’t want to go for a walk. I don’t want to watch a movie. I don’t want to Zoom.

I’m doing these things, of course. We all are. Only, the moment is requiring performance minus interest. That’s good, though it doesn’t feel good; doing what is required but not desired is a way of performing some of humanity’s more durable–and valuable–functions: service, sacrifice, learning.

God be with you today.
