TV, computers and life


When she was in college and came home for the holidays, one time my sister said that she did not watch any TV… none at all. I, as an adolescent, found that highly suspicious… I mean, what did she do for fun? 

She had a life.

Today, to pass some time, i turned on the TV and as i was searching for the “volume up” button i realized that currently, i watch no TV either.

I have a computer.



“Don’t fight your demons. Your demons are here to teach you lessons. Sit down with your demons and have a drink and a chat and learn their names and talk about the burns on their fingers and scratches on their ankles. Some of them are very nice.”

Demons are the past, the regrets that we have, the things we did wrong and the ones that we did not get around to doing.

Demons are our fears: of loneliness, of failure, of death.

Demons are our secrets, some of which we keep even from ourselves.

Demons are our insecurities, our strangest and darkest desires, our hidden natures.

We all have them, whether we want them or not. But it is already our choice how to deal with them. They are part of who we are, what we do, how we do it and why. And thus yes, i guess it does not hurt to have a cup of coffee with your demon. You might actually learn a thing or two.
