Musings

Sunset

Eleanor Roosevelt once said "Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people." (Or maybe she said it twice, how are we to know?)

In a long discussion yesterday with my dad while relaxing on Ocean Beach (it's on my summer bucket list -- which is linked here!) I realized I'm very guilty of discussing both people and events. But then, who isn't? What I do know though, is that I'm actively moving myself away from this, as I become more and more sure of myself and my thoughts and ideas. Sometimes it's good to discuss what's happened and who did what. But I think Eleanor wanted to point out that the ability to go deeper than that is what makes someone great.

Regardless of Ms. Roosevelt's insights, I'd just like to point out that this sunset was an event I'm happy I endured the wind for. :)
