When I was in school, I was never as enthusiastic about philosophy as I was sociology and politics. But, philosophy is interesting and I recently recalled discussing the meaning of life with friends in college. When I gave my ideas, one friend said “you’re an existentialist” so I had to go take the class and learn about it! Lately, as I get to 60, I have been pondering all of this, so today, when we go Beyond The Norm, let’s change it up, go basic and philosophical and ask: Why am I here? Are you an existentialist?
