~ buzzing along ~

Hey - could we do that again?

I know we haven't met, but I don't want to be an ant.

You know?

I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continously on ant autopilot, with nothing really human required of us.



Walk here.

Drive there.

All action basically for survival.

All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner.

"Here's your change."

"Paper or plastic?'

"Credit or debit?"

"You want ketchup with that?"

I don't want a straw, I want real human moments.

I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up.

I don't want to be ant, you know?

"Waking Life" is one of my very favorite movies... and one of the very few I own. Just catching up on your website and SO LOVING all of your recent quotes. Beautiful stuff! Thanks for passing on what's inspiring you.
