"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, continuously on ant auto-pilot with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. 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 an ant, you know?"
That really resonated with me lately. Lately, I've been feeling a little disconnected. Disconnected with my parents, my friends, and sometimes, even myself.
I guess that's the why I'm here on the Internet.
Where is the connection? What an ironic question in a hyper-socialized world...
