Seul…

It was half past three when i left the coffee shop, 2 hours passed unnoticed, a book in hand speaking of the counter-culture and the co-modification of it. Funny how the world seems to move in a seemingly inconstant rate. How at one time the world seems so slow and motions taking so long to finish, at another time the worlds seems to catch up speed of what it lost. And so here we are, in the accelerated version of slow motion, in the time-lapse video of life and everything contained in a single dense sphere. We are where we are and what we are thanks to the what we did and what we were, what theorist believe that identity is formed by experience and history either individually or collective. We change a lot, redefining ourselves from time to time, and probably I’ve said it  before, but somehow in the end we lapse back to the yearning of our older selves. Something some people call peter pan syndrome, the envy for the lost boys, how they never age and act as simple and as plain as they should be, as should we. We are still the kid back in grade school, the naive boy that receives daily beatings either at home (the perils of little brother) or school.

So why did we stop? why did we stop  pretending to be the cop or the robber, or the princess or the prince, or the over ambitious drag queen? We create our realities, our own identities, being who we are as we used to be… unfake…

One Comment to “Seul…”

  1. I comment each time I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it’s caused by the fire communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article Seul&. I was actually moved enough to post a commenta response 😉 I do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or do a few of these comments appear like coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional places, I’d like to keep up with you. Would you list all of all your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
