All those people, all those lives, where are they now? With loves, and hates, and passions just like mine, They were born, And then they lived, And then they died. It seems so unfair. I want to cry.
--Morrissey
"I decided that the most subversive, revolutionary thing I could do was to show up for my life and not be ashamed." --Anne Lamott

"Now our lives are changing fast...Hope that something pure can last. Hope that something pure can last." -- Arcade Fire

Children are often heard saying "Look at me!" to their parents. From an early age we want someone or something to witness our lives (potentially a longing for god). Our parents' role is to guide us OUT of self-importance but now technology allows us not to have to mature out of that "look at me" phase of childhood.
