Wanderer of the Forests

The writer and the story

Hey. Could we do that again?
I know we haven't met, but I don't want to be an ant. You know? I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continuously on ant autopilot, with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner.
"Here's your change."
"Paper or plastic?"
"Credit or debit?"
"You want ketchup with that?"
I don't want a straw. I want real moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up. I don't want to be ant, you know?
-Waking Life

"You know, I think that we can't expect to be understood, and we can't expect to understand each other if we don't tell each other our stories." -Ani DiFranco
