Impressions after reading a book about philosophy.
This story has no tags.
No, keep reading! Maybe they'll learn a thing or two from you. Like this: "The vertigo of uncertainty tries to appease the gods who steal our comforting illusions."
Cracking last line. Leaves me wishing it was longer which is better than leaving me wishing it was shorter.
Thank you, Matt, Samuel and Chris.
After such knowledge, what forgiveness?
Oh, my, "The vertigo of uncertainty. . . . "--too well captured! And "doomed to ask why," nevertheless. Nicely crafted piece. Vertigo, indeed.
Thank you, Gary and Ed.
***"Vertigo of uncertainty" is going in my notebook—a phrase to ponder, savor. (But I won't steal it, Kitty, promise.)
Thank you, John and Nonnie.
