At least talking about what you’re up to helps the ordinary remember
what they’re supposed to be up to.
And in his fearless, if not feckless re-sharpening of sequential saws,
the old man spoke to his lethargic charge thusly,
“Remember kid-o; a journey of a thousand
miles begins with a lotta luggage.”
People distract themselves in many ways,
but you shouldn’t let you be one of them.
Each person’s area of clearest sanity
is where they are close to being dinner.
You know, just because you forget about it,
doesn’t mean that that place where
ceases to exist.
It is an awesome responsibility to be your own best friend.
