Nothing matters

December 25, 2022

Over at Journeys with Johnbo, John Steiner hosts Cell Pic Sunday where we’re asked to share a photo from our cell phone or other mobile device.

It’s kind of weird but I still don’t think of my phone as a camera even though I take a bunch of pictures with it and haven’t carried a traditional camera in years. Old dog, I guess.

I saw this picture when out taking a walk back when the temperature didn’t feel like 100 degrees below zero. The message, out there in broad daylight for everyone to see, proves that it doesn’t matter what you think or what you do, which way you decide to go or not to go, it doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. It’s all meaningless.

Life might really be meaningless, or has no inherent meaning, who knows, and it’s each of us who gives life meaning. We create the meaning and the value. It’s kind of a freeing thought.

“Are these the Nazis, Walter?”
“No, Donny, these men are nihilists. There’s nothing to be afraid of.”
– Donny and Walter, The Big Lebowski
