it's not efficient;
it's doing everything a little bit worse.
a LOT worse.
it's putting others in harm's way, and I am the harm.
to be fully present as I walk through the world is not a trendy luxury.
it's protecting others against the careless version of myself.
it's got to stop.
the shoddy and the shabby
life is a practice
not a reactive flailing headlong plow through the world with one headlight out
we each are given our body space on the planet
and a measure of free will
and the risk to others
that accompanies such a gift.
and what is asked in return…
