Formerly very serious, Brett Carwyle has abandoned his search for life meaning in favor of simply bumbling along.

After decades of rarely even cracking a smile, serious-minded Brett Carwyle of New York City, someone never known for his sense of humor, finally came to acknowledge the ridiculous nature of life.

“It’s a shit-show,” said Carwyle, grinning and shaking his head at the thing called life. “A total circus. To think that I actually took it seriously all this time. Joke’s on me, I guess.”

Carwyle noted that he had spent the large majority of his life earnestly seeking some sort of meaning or logic to the human experience, without much success. “The best I managed to come up with was the present moment,” he said. “Yeah, I know. What does that even mean? I have no freaking clue.”

At this point, says Carwyle, he’s abandoned his desperate quest for meaning, and has conceded that, as a general rule, life is unpredictable, uncontrollable, and often nonsensical – the quintessential “mixed bag".

“What’re you gonna do?” said the now much-less-serious Carwyle. “Just bumble along, I guess, is the answer. That’s my plan. So far it’s been working out all right.”
