What a beautiful face I have found in this place that is circling all round the sun. What a beautiful dream that could flash on the screen in a blink of an eye and be gone from me. Let me hold it close and keep it here with me. And one day we will die and our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea.

“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 (a longing for god). Our parents’ role is to guide us OUT of self-importance but now technology hinders us from maturing out of that “look at me” phase of childhood.
