We spend our lives defending ourselves to ourselves for those things which we both consider and don’t consider to be part of ourselves, against the idea of what will have been. We hold our destiny, but spend a lifetime wishing this thing or that could be different. Life is a tangle of paths upon which we are constantly making decisions, which way to go, this place or that, based on the signposts we see. And the writing on those signposts is in some sort of divine code that becomes more and more archaic the more we understand of it.

How much of that time did you sleep off? How many days stumbling like a zombie through the routines, the necessary engagements, and daily communication with others, tethered to communicating with your own identity? Did the sheer number of people cause you to be indifferent to your place among them?
