God, the Ready Audience

Only a fraction of what gets written gets read.

Only a fraction of what gets thought gets written.

Only a fraction of what gets created gets experienced in any way.

Life goes at such a pace that you always have to choose whether to experience it or record it. We all know how to act like film stars, regardless of how fame eludes us.

Being one of the infinite number of monkeys on this planet producing unmined gems every day, you might imagine what it would be like to see them all gathered, polished and set. It's tempting to think of some interested supernatural being who can and will record and appreciate it all. Every meaningful look, every soliloquy, every unspoken insight will, at the very least, be lovingly magneted to the door of heaven's refrigerator.
