As we move and try to build worlds in strange cities things change very fast and meaning accumulates slowly. To construct something powerful out of the pain and dust takes a lifetime of faith and energy. Fortunately, every day is a lifetime and every day should be treated as such. A week is more than a lifetime. Whether a city is a motherboard or a living organism I hope that we can be more than just flat disembodied nodes on a network; complicated, compromised and not convoluted. There is a difference and a middle ground between sky and earth, between embodied life and knowledge, theory and practice. I have seen this middle ground with my own two eyes but far too rarely and only physically. A synthesis of sky and earth might be required and this will take a lifetime to accomplish. We all need to touch more earth. The truest truths, after all, are the simplest, and the body is the simplest truth. Right now, all I want to do is prove that I am alive and moving
