The strangeness of ordinary people

A gif of kid with compass in his head for brain

People are strange when you’re a stranger.

The Doors

There’s strangeness in ordinary people. They appear detached from the coming and going of their thoughts, lost in a banal inattentiveness.

Undirected activity always leads astray. Shutting down the other direction to absorb one’s happy ignorance leads to a world of stuckness. To break down the wall of thick goggles, it’s the responsibility of the mystic to groom the blind to the quality of the day.

To crack open myopia is the highest of arts.
