Bored or Becoming

November 10, 2018 by Charlie Hedges − 2 Comments

“…the paradox of the waiting that goes on in boredom is that the individual does not know what he was waiting for until he finds it, and that often he does not know that he is waiting…” Adam Philips

In our American way of thinking a person’s identity is predicated largely on his ability to be productive (and to be useful). One of the very first questions you are asked by a new acquaintance is, “So… what do you do?” It’s as if you are being asked, “So, what makes you a worthy human being?”

#88 Charlie The Increasing Need for Connection

October 30, 2018 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

Today Producer Paul and I are going to discuss the value and frustrations with deep friendships. I am finding in our new world of busyness and “friendship technology” like Facebook, etc. that many of us are finding ourselves without that old fashioned idea of deep and supportive relationships.
