There is a number set. There are a number of years/days/hours/minutes/seconds left of your very existence. YOU, as you read this have some limits believe it or not. You don’t know them but rest assured they exist. There are a set number of pizzas, showers, shits, dentist appointments, naps, books you’ll read, movies you’ll watch, new people you’ll meet. There’s only a certain amount of car rides you’ll take, phone calls you’ll make, parties you’ll go to, songs you’ll listen to, vacations you’ll go on. Everything has a limit, even though you have no idea what that number is. The pendulum swings and the clock ticks maybe only to remind you that these things accumulate, until the slate is wiped clean. You can use all your might to try to make it stop, or sing along with the rhythm. [Ryan Nimmo]
