in front of a seurat

there comes a time when one needs to realize that while the ideal behind the concept "friendship" exists, it should not be confused with the reality of "friendship;" it would be unwise to take the photograph for the original.

in the same way, one should never take the kindness or unkindness of strangers for anything other than what it is, a momentary, tangential, interaction between two distinct "others." what am i to you? a blip in the way of your progress through time. what are you to me? merely the same.

perhaps it is the yearning to return to the "unity" that makes us confused, and apt to read into the "i love you's" more than the "other" is able to mean.
