Western civilization is a strange phenomenon. Here we travel great distances everday in cars powered by the refined, fossilized remains of sea creatures long since gone. We have this digital thing that no one is quite sure how it works, but it connects the entire world and it’s called the internet.
There really is no initiation to adulthood in our civilization. We don’t have this coming-of-age tradition. Instead, we are “youth” is a long period of our lives that sometimes extends until as long as we let it.
Most places you go in this world you will find evidence of human existence, whether it be a painting of a hunting scene in a cave made with natural paints or if it’s a candy wrapper scuttling across the windy, meadow ground.
It’s sad that it won’t last forever.
