READING TIME | here we come and we don’t care mucho

Here we come and we don’t care mucho, it seems to be a good phrase to describe the internal force that drives the society in which we live nowadays; every time I get on the bus, walking the streets or a good song randomly plays from my Spotify playlist, I force myself to take a pause. A pause to look at everything in slo-mo that moves around me, even when at first sight much seems to stand still. To me, many (we) transit as if there is no tomorrow, moving forward no matter who or what is in front of or next to – we are breaking social pace. Maybe it is time to claim a pause, “here we come” should be tattooed on our foreheads. (We) seem to enjoy avoiding, it may be our ‘thing’; avoiding eye contact, sitting close to someone on the bus and dozens of other avoidance strategies in order to safeguard our impenetrable personal space. Avoid the other at all costs, no matter what.

Is it that we don’t care mucho or…?
