Chairs to You
Even as a little boy, i thought too much. i remember at the age of five asking my mother for the definition of ‘happy’. i also told her that life was unfair because it’s easier to break a chair than make one.
And i feel this way still today. A craftsman can spend weeks carefully assembling a chair with skill and artistry, using only the most valuable materials, and yet that same chair can be destroyed in a heartbeat. i know that i left a hell of a lot of broken chairs in my wake when i was drinking.
It feels like there’s something wrong with a universe where breaking is easier than creating.
Or maybe it’s the universe’s way of telling us that the easy way out isn’t necessarily the best way.
