TP Time (2020)
This piece shows the relationship of toilet paper and time. Are they both running out or is it possible to buy more of either one?
I snapped a picture while staring up at a tall pile of toilet paper rolls and an analog clock. The quick pace of the second hand clicking like a pacemaker while it was echoing in the room.
I will be honest. The daily news, the current state of the world, the country, the county, my city seems so surreal, it is starting to become more difficult to get a firm grasp on reality. In the Stephen King novella, “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption”, a character named “Red” has just been released from prison and is starting up live in civilian society after being locked up for decades, and he remembers a line told to him by his friend Andy to either “get busy living or get busy dying.” I never really knew what that meant, because how is there a way to prepare for death since it is so unknown.
“Get busy living” has taken on a new meaning this year, where connections we have formed are becoming more important than just a respectful nod while passing a familiar face down the street. A meaningful connection can be sending someone who was an important part of your life at one point a message and letting them know that they are part of our collective conscious of memories.
At a time in our history where there is so much pain, anger, stress and animosity going around, would it really hurt to become a beacon of light and share positive memories with people who might be feeling lonely at this time?
We will not be around on Earth forever, so why use so much negative energy to hold grudges and pass around negative energy around?
Take the time to reach out to another human being from your past. Life is too short for grudges.
