Not having much to say but saying it anyway seems to be my mode of choice. Mode of communication, mode of updating. I wonder if there’s a word for that sensation when you say one word too much and it loses its meaning. Like you just catch estrangement like a cold and it clings to…… Continue reading Estrangement Bug
It seems crazy what can change in half a moment. If we had any day-to-day realisation of it, nobody would every be as stupid as to text while driving, or something like that.
