What then, do we call this always-feeling of wanting to leave, of dodging attention, of not wanting to be seen or even thought of? Let's give it a name so we can know it and have reason to forget. If you go someplace new, you are bound to meet new people and settle into routine eventually. There is no insulation from newness becoming something familiar and comfortable, becoming old and cloying, becoming something you want to forget in favor of another newness. See, this is a cycle, a neverending hamster wheel. Cage door is open yet you stay inside.
