The onion reminds me of my frailty. This simple vegetable brings me to tears and there is nothing I can do about it. It’s easy to forget how fragile I am. The best technology can do is to hide my vulnerability; the worst is to allow me to forget it’s truth.
Billions of years of serendipity have allowed me the grace of existence in this world. Meanwhile it is all I can do to rise slightly above the chaos, knowing the whim of chance can take it all away. I come from a long evolutionary line of stupendous bad-asses. So do onions. All the denizens of this world do. Except for the most powerful; they come from nothing, and are all around us.
The onion reminds me to strive for clarity. To persist through the fog. To try harder. I now have a delicious dinner.

Take some time and further your life goals. Spend at least 30 minutes. You already know what you want. Take the time and do it. It’s easier than you think.
You and your friend are trying to decide whether or not to jump across a chasm. You want to jump across to the other side where you will be rewarded with delicious berries. You friend wants to stay put and eat the so-so berries here. So you decide to compromise: you each jump halfway across the chasm and die.
Not all situations are chasms, but the really important ones usually are. Compromise can kill you; go for consensus if you can. If you can’t, go alone.
