What brings you a sense of purpose/meaning?
I've never felt a "purpose" and I don't believe that we have any high moral of philosophical reason for being either. I just live by the 3 principles:
Other than that, my love for the natural world gives me strength and my constant curiosity and desire to learn about the world around us
For a lot of years it was raising my kids but their grown now so without any hesitation it's playing music. I play a LOT of music I'm in a morris dancing band and run a fortnightly session and play in other sessions. My kids laugh at me because I'm over 25 years clean but i spend a huge amount of time in pubs we also have 'kitchen sessions' where we go to each others homes and sit around playing tunes, drinking tea and talking 'bollocks'
? a session is when a group of musicians get together to play -usually folk music
? morris dancing is a very strange phenomena and probably best you-tubed
?a pub is a lot like a bar
? bollocks are actually male genitals but in this sense used to mean 'chatter chatter'
I'm pretty sure we are here to create. It doesn't matter if it's art, music, carpentry, inventions.... It seems to me that once the basics of getting by are covered, making new things is really the only thing we can do to add to our world as we know it.
