"If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing." -Benjamin Franklin The words of old Ben, stuck in me. Six years ago, I was looking for direction and this phrase provided illumination amidst the blinding darkness of world events, social media, and toxic people. Being equipped with the necessary skills to apply Ben's advice has been the cornerstone of my outlook on life - I refer to it as "mind surfing". The process involves understanding how all things take form in the mind and navigating our own inherent problems and responsibilities is still the best way forward.
