"So we'll be unsatisfied"
>Whatever we do will only be partial. It can't be everything. So we'llI can't read the word "satisfaction" without thinking of cumulating tension
>be unsatisfied. We will never attain to a complete and perfect

in an effort while longing to have this tension coming to an and, and then
rejoicing of this feeling we were longing to, and then what we were longing
for, the end of a time of higher tension as what seems the BEST to us
happens. Feelings of satisfaction are to me of infinitely numerous kind, and
more or less limited in time, from relief after an intense day at work to
getting one's society in the black figures after long years of being in
debt, or having one's children making of you a granddad or mum, a.s.o.
So I assumed that in typing "So we'll be unsatisfied" you were just
concentrating on this idea of being imprisoned in unavoidable rituals
inherent to our chosen ways of living...
Nowadays, because of the apparition of new kinds and varieties of
occupations, moving technological context prevents from popularizing
specialised schools, so employment is based on interviews, and diplomas are
just a proof of ability of working hard and seriously, and less on special
formations than before. This leads to enhance the amount of professionnal
opportunities and so there are more chances for anyone to feel that (s)he
gets multicompetent and lives several lives in the same time.
And eventually & anyway this - your very conclusion:

I rejoice, though, JL, in your opportunities. Obviously most people
don't share them.
