Just a Rant...

There are many days when I feel like I don’t belong... Not to any tribe, not to any group, not to any place. I listen, I observe, I converse, I indulge. But, the more I meet others, the less I feel connected. Is it selfishness or age or arrogance? I don’t know, but if I’m speaking my truth, I don’t really give a shit. Most people’s conversations, of course not all, but many, are just not that interesting to me. As I listen to their loud voices dribble on about trivial issues, I feel disconnected, bored. Most watch the same things, say the same things, do the same things. Robots. A full and complete Stepford Society. When I watch people as they sit at a bar, intently staring at the television or staring at their phone, oblivious to each other…it’s mind numbing to me. When I overhear obnoxious people complaining about this or that, speaking as loudly as possible just so they can get the attention they need. It’s blah, blah this or blah, blah that. Whatever. Do I sound like that? Am I sounding like this now? Obnoxious? I wonder. Probably. What happened to meaningful conversations about travel, culture, world views, politics, religion, the bigger picture? Real conversations, as in not a text, not a chat, but face to face... Conversations about issues that really fucking matter as in like what’s happening now. Why are so many afraid to confront, afraid to challenge, afraid to expose? I long for those conversations. I need them. I am so tired of cliché topics. Cryptocurrency, NFTs, small conversations, narrow minds, material bullshit, conspiracy theories, hipsters, influencers and what they have to say, fuck them. Especially influencers, really…fuck them. Go sell that shit to someone else. Am I the only one that thinks like this? I don’t think so. I hope not. Maybe I’m just good at voicing my feelings and…well, not really giving a crap what everybody else thinks. That’s my own personal super power. I-Don’t-Give-A-Fuck-Man. Yes, there’s a ring to it… Haha. Maybe you feel that this piece is mindless dribble too, another boring cliché. Maybe I sound just like the people I’m criticizing now. That’s ok. Oh well. Categorize this under…who-gives-a-fuck. The end of a rant…
