There has been a slow rescinding of my social licence since I divested myself of the everyday rituals. Withdrawing from many social acts, I see the framework and structure within which these daily rituals play out and watch as the mass of people bend and move in their genuflection and recitations of formalities and politeness, stepping through conventions. From a distance this dance looks like mewling and grovelling with winners and losers yet, from within, another version plays out in the minds of the actors who see themselves acting as one, complicit, empathetic, sympathetic to communal laws and social bonds.
