Every person carries their own burden, which is why, I've been admonished, we should always be loving and charitable.
It's hard, however, being loving and charitable, when so much is so brutal and stupid.
But worse than the brutal stupidity and weaponized noise of so much marketing, is the mania of trying to win awards.
So much of the work I've seen is so utterly and completely meritless I am practically agape. What's happened, and I've remarked on this sort of thing before, is the disintegration, the meaninglessness of the compound "award-winning."
Awards are meant to be given for something "unusual." Something extra-special. Something note-worthy.
Today, all that seems out the window.
Entering is award-winning.
