I need more interesting people in my life. People who would rather be outside than watching shitty TV or who go to things like art shows and poetry readings or are intellectually stimulating and make me question my beliefs. I just feel so bored with people sometimes.
This is utterly and completely the way I’ve felt lately, and I’ve come up with this idea where I could find interesting things to do in someone else’s city that sound interesting, almost like a dare, and they’d go and send little souvenirs back, like brochures or photographs or soil samples, and an activity in the other’s city in return for them to attend, and so on. Because sometimes in the place you live, the best discoveries have been staring you in the face all along. Anyone game?
Bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder, “Why, why, why?”
Tigar got to sleep,
Bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.” —The Books of Bokonon
