Big Lift Ferry Poem F144

I’d much prefer an
Interesting life over
An exciting one –
Which is how I lead my life –
According to most people

Notes to this poem…

When I tell people about my life, people don’t generally think it’s very exciting. Probably because they wouldn’t care to lead it if they could. However, they do think it’s very interesting, as in knowing someone who does all the things I do. 🙂

Why I prefer an interesting life, though, is that excitement is too fleeting and doesn’t engage my mind nearly enough for my liking.

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
