Receiving Freedom

Deskwork morning. I chuckle, as always, at the name of my favorite credit card: Freedom. But add the name of the bank in front of it and the meaning changes drastically: Chase Freedom. If ya chasin', y'ain't catching!

That pretty much sums up the nature of credit cards. They seduce you with promises of your hearts delight, then chain you in clear sight of the vision that inspired you to begin with: close enough to tantalize, never to touch. Not to disparage their usefulness: know thy adversary and it becomes thy servant.

So what is the true nature of the quest? If the universe is truly a infinite feast, belly up to the bar! Chase freedom becomes receive freedom. Receive freedom becomes live freedom.
