We Amuse Ourselvesby Brenda Erickson
ABOUT THE ART
We fill our lives with activities and quests to distract ourselves from the fact that we are dying and that we probably won't be remembered or leave anything immortal behind. We are wasting time from birth to death. Milling around and tricking ourselves into believing we are important. We get pets, buy houses, take trips, go to shows, buy hot tubs, take cooking classes, learn shamanism...ANYTHING...in an attempt to not look at the moment with brutal honesty. We are dying...hopefully not so soon...but dying we are.
