Under my nose

I must have too much time on my hands, but I was very taken by something Douglas Murray said on the Lex Fridman podcast. I transcribe/paraphrase below. 
LF: What’s the meaning of life? Let's go there.
DM: The meaning is a hard one of course; where is the meaning is slightly easier….. 
Now there's a conservative answer to this which is quite useful and it's certainly more useful than any others, because the conservative answer is find meaning where people have found it before which is a very, very good answer. If your ancestors found meaning in a place of worship or a particular canon of work go there because it's been proven by time.
Advice I seem to have taken in instinctively; explaining everything from my genuflection in Convento Santa María de Jesús to my love of Runyon on Broadway.

Tech Files: The video embedded above is the first YouTube clip I have ever created. Start times are food and drink to me, but this has both a start and finish time. In other developments I have linked my Wordle stats to a NYT account. Also changed the battery on the car's Intelligent Access Key. It's a guy thing.
