How many people live their lives in a fog everyday? You know what I mean. They do the things that make the money to pay the bills so they can enjoy what little leisure time they get. Then when they get the leisure time they are so worn out they have no mental energy for anything else other than mindless entertainment and comfort food("Spongebob and swissrolls good!"*).
But this works on a spiritual basis too. Sociologists theorize that religion was not developed until it society developed to the point that there was leisure time available to think and create. Whether this is true explicitly I am not sure, but I am certain that being busy and stressed leaves you very little time to think of eternal things, or for that matter anything outside of your own head.
I never meant for work to overtake my life like this. It seems like my life has become a fog of telephones, voices in my headset I will never meet, and data entry. But the fog continues to clear now and then and I will see what's really important in life.

*I am not dissing Sponge Bob or Swiss Rolls-I have a videotape full of Sponge Bob, and can eat a whole box of swissrolls if you put them in front of me-I am just saying that there is more to life than this.
Purgatory: A place of suffering and torment with an unknown duration. In Roman Catholic Theology-the place where the dead are purified from their sins.
