I got a good chunk of reading done on the train today. Currently: Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man. I'm only on chapter 3 but this motif of blindness is prevalent. People certainly choose to be blind to things and the reason why classics become classics is because it still resonates with people today. Blindness is often thought of something that is afflicted on someone but it is also something we choose. It is most dangerous when someone is lured under facades of human kindness and smiles. We choose to see the good and leave the ugly parts out. I hope you know what I'm talking about, if you don't, you probably just think I'm neurotically psycho. Discernment is necessary and that I am still learning but as we go through life, we must discern!
