Prejudice and Discrimination II

The houses you travel past—at least those you travel past on foot or on two wheels—form a perpetual cyclorama, with which you can do one of two things:

  1. You can strive to discriminate the finer details and parse the fabric of a thousand lives frozen in a moment, or 
  2. You can ignore the discriminate details and simply use that cyclorama as a canvas upon which to project what is already formed in your mind.
I find that I switch between the two, based on my frame of mind. When I am feeling good, I do the former; when I am feeling bad, I do the latter. I think that's significant.
