Kreider!

Tim Kreider strikes again! Another superior post on Happy Days. This time he's looking at the way we handle the vast array of life paths/choices available to us and sticking by our particular choice. Love love love this man's writing.

Favorite passage [not cause I share his perspective on the issue, but it cracks me up]:
"Most of my married friends now have children, the rewards of which appear to be exclusively intangible and, like the mysteries of some gnostic sect, incommunicable to outsiders. In fact it seems from the outside as if these people have joined a dubious cult: they claim to be much happier and more fulfilled than ever before, even though they live in conditions of appalling filth and degradation, deprived of the most basic freedoms and dignity, and owe unquestioning obedience to a capricious and demented master."
