does inaction ever bring change?

I believe inaction doesn't bring change by itself, though someone else's action could bring change to your inactive space... as a collateral effect of their action(?)
It's not likely, anyhow.

If you want change, you ought to act.

However... one could argue there is no such thing as inaction, since it implicates the choice (the act) of being inactive. Inaction is thus an action; and, by itself, a change.

So you’re a-changing ma’ mate, acting or not: never the same river twice ;)

haha, true true. though change itself is inevitable and continuous (i do like rivers), i think a lot of that is just due to time passing, not the events happening within that time. but then time wouldn't really be measurable if nothing happened between time a and time b, so maybe that wasn't really what i was wittingly meant to say. haha. good to hear from you all the same. =)

and now i have ol' man river stuck in my head... he just keeps rolling along...

I have rivers in my head now too and I keep thinking of all the stones in a river that create a rapids. They stay still while the river moves around them but it would be a different river if they weren't there. You wouldn't even be able to notice the movement, it would all be under the surface.

It seems to make sense in my own mind. But not really out loud.

Personally, I think inaction is one step shy from complacency, which is like creative death. But I've been doing way too much thinking lately and should probably stop now.
