Walking down on Queen St. A few steps ahead a child is crying. A homeless near me shouts:
"Of course the child is crying, look at the fucking world that she lives in!!!"
I find this scene on one hand hilarious, and on the other hand full of wisdom: the homeless person finds in the child's cry an explanation for and a justification of the state of the world "we" live in.
And isn't this actually what all of us do? We all choose fragments of what the environments presents to us, to justify and explain our personal view of the culture that surrounds us. For this reason, change HAS TO BEGIN with the increase of awareness of our emotionally imprinted cultural values and views.
Here are some fragments selected by my camera. I gave them my own titles, but I would be happy to hear yours!
