#183 / Seriously Heavy

"Heavy" has some colloquial meanings, as documented in the Urban Dictionary. One of them is "serious."

In fact, etymological research indicates that the word "serious" is directly related, in its origins, to the word "heavy."

Serious people take the "weight of the world upon their shoulders," just like Atlas.

That certainly goes along with the idea that it is we who have the responsibility for creating the world we most immediately inhabit.
