More for the mind

Then there’s that uncomfortable feeling of stillness. When the mind wonder what else there is to do. If there’s nothing it can find it comes up with something. Just to distract, to forget, to escape. And there are plenty of distractions on offer. Just as there are 50 types of different crisp brands at Walmart in Albuquerque. Because we need it? Because we can. Because we always want more. More of things, more food, more brands, more money, more types of coffee, more fast food joints, newer, better, faster, tastier. Things we do to run away from ourselves, things we come up with to keep ourselves busy. Things we think we need to keep ourselves satisfied.
