This week I had lunch with my good friend John who is a lover of the Greek classics. He reads both the Iliad and the Odyssey like some people read scripture.
Anyway. He made this interesting observation. The Greek gods (with perhaps the exception of Zeus) are frivolous. And why are they frivolous? Because they have nothing but time and time and time again on their hands. Which means none of their choices matter. There are no stakes. There's always tomorrow.
It isn't that way for the humans they deal with, of course. They have to choose because there's only so much time. And their choices are meaningful because of that.
Here's to choosing what matters.
