I'm thinking about all the things we do to disconnect. About how disconnection is a way of life, and how terribly mistaken we are to spend so much time numbing ourselves. We watch mindless television to avoid thinking, we drink caffeine to wake up, we take sleeping pills to sleep, we take anti-depressants instead of changing our lives, we stay in bad relationships for bad reasons, we smoke cigarettes instead of quitting, we drink. The answers can not be found in the bottom of a bloody Mary. There are better ways. When I figure them out, I'll pass them along.
