It is what it is

The order of life is not pre-determined; we shape our future. Living in the present, in the now, we are responsible for what happens.

But there are parts of life that we can’t influence. By moving in space, we are participating in random movements of the human mass. Stirring the air and pushing particles around, we are sending them on courses, colliding with particles stirred by others.

At times we are running too fast, leaving the present unnoticed. Yet this is the element that defines us — what happens now is the only real. Quality of this experience pushes us forward, generating more randomness. It is its frequently ignored beauty that attracts me.
