There is something about a shady alley. It basically invites you into itself. Like a sign that says ‘don’t push this button’. One finds that the human condition is such that the button is always and invariably pushed. Same thing. Countless alleys have been entered into by myself and the hound over the years. Each has a story to tell, a message to impart about the inhabitants and their microlives. Information hidden from normal view. Unaided, unadulterated, unseen. The body language of the cities streets is etched most strongly into its subways and its alleys. The shady alleys. I urge you, too, to explore..
Waking, I logged into my portal and started reading my channel. Same old bullshit.
Internet/TV/smartphones create a gap, subsuming a living-thinking-breathing CREATING being, with a passive, consuming, numbing hole that needs to be filled with ever increasing diversification of STUFF.
Shop, then watch, then eat. Then eat, then shop, then watch, watch, watch. CONSUME…
It’s what you were born for..
