Why bother?

Well, you were born, and here you are, bothering me...I so don't mind, I am here to help. I think we need to find diversions in life, there are astounding choices available to us. And then try to bother enjoying doing something. Seeing something, being something, making something, making someone else happy, doing some good. Why bother? Bothering is what we are here for, us nefarious creatures. We try, we attempt, we fail, we learn, we make do, we try something else. We meet people, see things, are introduced to new concepts, engaged with different ways of thinking, reading and trying...
If I didn't have books I wouldn't be who I am today. I bother because thats what being a human is about, bumbling along and trying all sorts of new angles, and being exposed to what the world has to offer, and then try to give something back. It may not be much, a little good energy, a smattering of something, because life is certainly brief and to be immersed in this world for even a little bit is your burden, not to be taken too lightly. There is only one of you, so you ought to take care of yourself.
