Dimwit mandatory observations of an orchestrated catastrophe...

On the theme of Attention:

"...It made me feel a little scared to think that maybe there’s a whole class of things that I'm unaware of. That I am un-self-conscious of. And that I'm going to be forced to pay attention to. I can't quite see how I'm going to stay in the present if there are all of these things I have to pay attention to.  It all goes by so fast, it’s confusing, and I feel like I'm not really in control of it. Like it’s sweeping me along and I only have time to pick up on a few things..." Cruise Control, The Willies, 1993

A meditation on the ends of things, and whether we have to accept them gracefully or not. Two old friends sit together through the end of a lovely summer day, as the light fades, and talk about whether the end that is coming, is inevitably coming, nothing to be done about that, whether that end can be embraced. Or whether not going gently, but going with resistance, is another strategy that can have dignity. These people know each other very, very well, and thus, they call each other out on all their little tricks of mind. But that is what they love about each other, the little tricks of mind.
