Gardens are a concept. Suburbs are founded upon them. Out in the cities there is nothing but death. The suburbs help make the march to death feel a whole lot slower with less activity, as if time got elongated. For the suburbs obstacles are eliminated replaced by easier things. Plenty of skeletons are put in the closets of suburban homes for the suburban homes have way more closet space. Cities typically are a bit too cramped for the right amount of skeletons, because everybody wants skeletons and needs to store those skeletons in either closets or storage units, but the monthly rent on those storage units is way too high.
Like rent, parties go too high. That is why people want to raise their glasses at parties for toasts. Spectacular parties raise roofs with the encouragement of bland generic DJs. Alcohol tends to be given out, distributed amongst party goers at a house party. Various artifacts remain important for any party. Red solo cups, named for the embarrassment and loneliness the user faces, are a necessary component of empty parties. Police break up the red solo cup parties because they do not want individuals at said party to become too depressed and too lonely. For the red solo cups the world is not enough.
James Bond states the world is not enough but then James Bond has a rather impressive pension waiting for him upon his retirement. Sure James Bond likes to think he’s immortal with all those movies dedicated to the variations of him but that is far from the truth. Everyone has seen the exciting James Bond movies, there are no movies made about James Bond taking a day off, running errands, walking his dog, getting his haircut, the viewer is led to assume that these things do not happen in James Bond’s life. But these things happen to everyone.
Babyhood happened to everyone. People try to forget that long ago they were mere babies. Adults are always upset by babies. They forget what it means to be a baby: the confusion, the illogical situations, the things that adults simply deem “part of life”. Babies see right through that nonsense which is why they cry. Everywhere there are plenty of things that should drive people crazy: product placement, crass consumer sensibility, etc. Yes everyone can eat fresh but the question remains: should they? If Subway is eating fresh, if Quiznos is toasty, then what is the point of doing anything. What differentiates a slogan from a lie is repetition.
Life is full of repetition. The repeating can be beautiful, calming, knowing essentially the same thing happens over and over again. Routine does not need to bite hard with consistency comes comfort. Awful habits can form out of this cycle but every bad cycle can be broken with a counteracting cycle. Sudden shocks to the system are a must when the system is unjust. From that sudden shock a new normal takes form and eventually takes hold because upheaval can be tiresome. Good habits can form out of cycles though it takes years of practice to get it right.
To really cut to the heart of the matter requires a life hack, meaning life can get hacked with the right passwords. Every action needs the right words and with the right words anything is possible.
