Today is Tunday.
First thing I heard today was the Muslim Adhan.
Which was swiftly followed by some early bird preacher and their praise and worship team.
I woke up with my mind heavy.
Creativity. Creator. Creating.
That’s the primary thing bothering me right now.
Am I a creative?
Aren’t we all creatives?
How much am I creating?
As opposed to the amount I consume.
Because I consume a lot.
I consume food; I consume herbs; I consume music; I consume movies and TV shows; I consume words penned hundreds of years ago; I consume tweets written minutes ago.
I consume a lot.
And this bothers me nowadays.
My Google profile picture depicts a bull, reading from “The Daily Bullshit” while sitting on a toilet bowl. The toilet is connected to a television set which airs the bull’s shit to a family of four.
I put this profile picture when I felt that I’d watched enough TV to last me several lifetimes.
I presumed that my TV watching days were nearing an end.
That was 7 years ago.
I still watch TV. Not as enthusiastically as I did then, but I still do.
Hence I stayed up for four hours watching the Snyder Cut.
And why every week I’ll spend about 20 to 30 minutes watching Last Week Tonight.
Every time I do that though something gnaws at me. Something urges me to get up and out of the consumption cycle and create.
