Absurdity, Joy, Lucidity

“Basically, at the very bottom of life, which seduces us all, there is only absurdity, and more absurdity. And maybe that’s what gives us our joy for living, because the only thing that can defeat absurdity is lucidity”

-Albert Camus

One fall evening a couple of years ago, my daughter was stressed out about her homework in the beginning of her middle school years.  I told her it was time to put it away, throw on some costumes and forget about it.  Life is full of ridiculous absurdities.  I wanted her to see there were options for reflecting the absurdity back in life’s face, look down at it from above it all.
