"Darkness seeping slowly in my flesh and in my bone and the solitary biting at the thoughts inside my head and the words came slowly and the unborn dream said… that we all loose the path through the black and blue that we all come back slackly with the tried and the true we’ll all come together no its never to soon we’ll all see the light of the broken afternoon"
As of lately i’ve been rather annoyed with people more so then usual. Seems like everyday i wake up to go out and enjoy the world i see more and more people blinded. Blinded by the great picture that is in front of them. Now if you guessed im about to ramble about nature then you are correct. It seems like ever since i was younger ive always noticed things that many of my friends or people in general dont see. I’ve been this way for as long as i can remember. Regardless of what gadgets or technology garbage is released i seem to still not take much part in it. I have an iphone but its cracked to complete shit and i could careless to be honest. But even when it was new i wasn’t on it as much as most people are.
I guess the point im trying to get at is this:
You are on this planet for only a certain amount of time. In that certain amount of time you have it is up to you to live your life the way you want to live it. While all these corporations keep hand feeding us distractions and time continues to fly by us if we dont stop and take a moment (or a life time) to really notice the wonderful things around us then no one will ever care. So the next time you find yourself staring at your phone for hours on end or the next time you find your self sitting in front of the tv wasting away. Just turn it off. Turn it all off. Step outside and take a fucking moment and look around you. Because some day it may not be there. Im going to quote a line from 180 south which is quite possibly one of the best documentaries i have ever watched in my entire life.
"How can people who are trapped in the city try to create a more ecologically minded world if you don’t know that it’s possible. A good example of how people become closed off from their ecosystems is with their walkmen or iPods. So you start to further close yourself off. You don’t want to breathe the dirty air, you don’t want to hear because it’s annoying, you don’t want to look because it’s ugly. That is why we dont understand nature, love it or take care of it. We don’t realize that we depend on it psychologically and physically 100%-"
