yay for Joey, yay for Hama

I'm a huge Camus fan. I've read and I own just about everything he's ever written. I went to Hama's web log from Joey's link and, lo and behold, I find a link to The Myth of Sysiphus!

I have it sitting on my shelf at home but, like so many other dusty books there, it rarely gets opened. I always loved Camus' interpretation of Sysiphus. It was very similar to how I felt about it when I first read the story, as a kid. I mean, christ, I saw my dad work his whole life as a zookeeper (I know, I know, tease me about it later ;-). It was a crummy job and he worked his ass off every day, but he was generally happy.

I guess the story is kind of...fortifying for me. It reminds me of where happiness comes from. Kind of like The Shawshank Redeption how Tim Robbin's character always has hope. I don't know. It's too close to party time for me to think about all this deep, intellectual, touchy-feely bullshit but, if you get a chance, check it out. It's a real quick read, just a page or two.

I'll have to check that one out. Sounds like something I'd like.
