I was thinking about how so many people try to define what the meaning of life is.

What is the meaning of life?

I could spend time pondering that eternally unanswered question,

or, I could go for a walk, talk to my parents, have coffee with a friend,

paint my nails, babysit for my neighbors, write a poem.

I could read a book, paint a picture, pick a flower, plant a garden,

volunteer to mentor, tell a joke, have a good cry.

Yes, I could spend time wondering what life means.

Yet, I think I would rather do everything but that

and just feel what life really is.
