prey ripped out of python
Don’t be so hard up with life.
Don’t hold on so desperately to your cash, to your material collections.
Don’t be so utterly terrified of losing your way of life, your hard-earned status, your forever dream come true that never was.
One natural disaster takes away your possessions. One simple stroke changes your lifestyle. One tiny germ robs you of life.
Remember your first pure delight as a child?
Remember the second arrogance of entitlement and its accompanying outrage of deprivation?
Remember your peace of mind, your clean of heart, your clarity of spirit, for three.
“We really did have everything, didn’t we?”
- Randall Mindy, in the 2021 movie Don’t look up, acted by Leonardo DiCaprio.
