Quote #889 - #RinseandRepeat

19 Aug, 2019


"People assume that repetition is always a static thing, but I beg to differ ... Repetition [can] manifest one's ability to go on experiencing the very same thing from a different perspective and in a brand-new light."
Criss Jami

"Our lifestyle, our life, the way we think and do things, really is a practice; a daily practice."
Akiroq Brost

"The human comedy is always tragic, but since its ingredients are always the same ... the repetition through the ages is comedy."
Dawn Powell

Thinking about all the things we do over and over again,
how they shape us,
how they build us,
how they make our lives for better and/or for worse.

Rinse and repeat.
Rinse and repeat.
Feel the boredom as a numbing of the soul
or find new ways to see it, feel it, do it, know it.

From this place of paring down
(paring down and throwing out itself being a
rinse and repeat kind of activity)
I am trying to shift
and learn new ways of seeing, of experiencing,
if not doing.

And everywhere every day the horrors of our country,
our society,
our world right now.

Up close is tragedy.
From a distance is comedy.

That itself is a perspective shift
I continually try to do.

Scream. Cry. Laugh.
Rinse and repeat.
