There are those moments when time passes too quickly.
People leave you, though not always forever.
People make ridiculous choices regarding country power.
People mistake you for some one else.
You grow fond of people you know you won't see much, and alot happens when you don't want it to.
" There are so many hammocks to catch you if you fall, so many laws to keep you from experience. All these cities I have been in the last few weeks make me fully understand the cozy, stifling state in which most people pass through life. I don't want to pass through life like a smooth plane ride. All you do is get to breathe and copulate and finally die. I don't want to go with the smooth skin and the calm brow. I hope I end up a blithering idiot cursing the sun hallucinating, screaming, giving obscene and inane lectures on street corners and public parks. People will walk by and say, "Look at that drooling idiot. What a basket case." I will turn and say to them "It is you who are the basket case. For every moment you hated your job, cursed your wife and sold yourself to a dream that you didn't even conceive. For the times your soul screamed yes and you said no. For all of that. For your self-torture, I see the glowing eyes of the sun! The air talks to me! I am at all times!" And maybe, the passers by will drop a coin into my cup.
That quote makes me think there are actually people who use their mental capacities.
I'm hardly around the smart ones.
I feel good about my job, I don't feel good about my living arrangements. But life, as life, goes on.
Hear me out.
It's my turn to make comments concerning how you live.
ps- you know you have a rockin good friend when they take books for you.
