Universe Closed

Life is meant to be lived. Wholeheartedly and unabashedly. We only get one shot here on this crazy planet, and we owe it to ourselves and our fellow earthlings to make our one shot count.

Maybe there is no point to all of this. In the grand scheme, we’re just a bunch of chunks of carbon and water in the vast universe. There is no grand purpose, fate, destiny, karma, or any other grand schemata that will make meaning for us. We have to make our own meaning.

In our day to day choices, in our own ways, in our outrageous acts and everyday rebellions, in our words, in our purchases, we make meaning. We craft our purpose daily. It doesn’t just happen; it has to be sought after and fought for.

Start a feminist book club. Protest outside your local town hall. Write a manifesto. Go vegan. Make music. Do something, anything, that shouts to the universe, “I’m here, and I matter!”

Make your mark on this world, Radigans. You’re going to die someday, maybe even today. Don’t waste a day in this beautiful and terrible world. Make every day count.
