Trivial and meaningless is all that springs to mind. Yet it feels like a storm, the branches cracking beneath its might. Air: life-giving yet so destructive. The condition for living also makes us miserable. The origin of our consciousness is pain. How fitting then that throughout life, suffering makes us realize that we’re alive.
