How To Take Your Own Path

I saw this little passage in The New York Times Magazine this weekend.  I don't know why it was excerpted, or even what it means exactly, but for some reason it resonated...and stuck.  I thought I'd share it with you.

How to Take Your Own Path

My perverse ideal is to look at my life as a work as I live it and make it as pretty and stimulating as possible, as if experience is an opportunity to create forms.  I want to choose what to do in my life as a form I'm creating, making what I've done into a shape.

Hmmm.  Still, for some reason, in a weird, inexplicable does make sense.
