Lead a Quiet Life

Every word in this recreation of ambition presents a challenge to my old mode of operations and the environment that I reside.

There is not all that much that is quiet today. Noise abounds in the background, noise abounds from the screens, and noise abounds in my head. Quiet is pretty foreign in the moment.

Then there is “lead”. I thought to “lead” was an action that put a man on point in front of other men. Today, it seems that everyone is being developed to be a leader. A leader in their field. A leader in their organization. A leader in their battalion. But, “lead” to a quiet life? Hmmm…doesn’t seem like that will lead to many followers.

Then there is “life”. What a frame. Life is such a word that challenges time definitions. Does one mean the life they are living today in this very moment? Does one mean the life that they may live for the next few decades? Does one mean the story of their life lived that may even go beyond the days of life experienced in this reality?

Lead a Quiet Life? Lead who? How? For how long?
