Living in the Unknown

Twin currents ripping through our human collective

On the one hand:

a hysterical frenzied appetite for information that has now reached astronomical proportions — a vast tsunami overwhelming us all with a cacophony of data, within which us mortals grasp for meaningful morsels while the machines trawl, stack, and disgorge in quantities we cannot even imagine

And on the other:

a profound need to let go

falling back 

into the dark of the unknown

sweet relief of remembering 

that it’s just fine like that

savouring the moment instead

that is your breath

the touch of a hand

the look in their eyes

a scudding sky

which wolf shall we feed?
