“The world is made of energy, which is neither created or destroyed. Everything she is was here before me. Everything she was will remain. Her existence touches both my past and my future at one point- infinity. Lifelines aren't lines at all. They are more like circles.”― Shannon Lee Alexander
The show is a return to a familiar theme for me. The linear view of quickly fleeting, finite days to capture all that life has to offer is motivating for some. For others, like myself, “carpe diem” feels more like an order: don’t waste a single moment of your life not wildly grabbing at what you think you need to be happy.
In the moments when my mind drags me into the great lie, telling me that my own peace is not enough, that I have to seek some greater fortune, adventure, or some greater euphoric happiness before I run out of time, I find myself seeking solace, tranquility, and security in the infinite.
