some moments are not meaningful at all

‘meaningful’ is not the right word and neither is ‘introspective,’ it’s a word that exists between those words

i think some moments exist to be simple sentences that don’t necessarily have a greater purpose than to be exactly what they are

i think most animals experience life in simple sentences and most people do not. or maybe they do. it depends. i don’t know. i am done thinking about this

In the United States there is more space where nobody is than where anybody is. In selected unpublished blog posts of a mexican panda express employee there is more space where nobody is than where anybody is.  The sentiment of the first sentence has been touted by one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century written in books and essays while she was living in Europe. She was born and raised in the United States but she lived in Europe for a longer period of time than she lived in the United States. She claimed in interviews that she was American but that her hometown was Paris. One could say quite correctly that she found herself there.  She did that during a time in the early twentieth century when a lot of American writers lived in Europe which also contributed to them finding themselves there. Some found something in relation to writing and some found something in relation to life. And some found something in relation to writing and to life. Quite possibly and many would argue probably correctly that the internet has done something similar for a current generation of writers writing today. The internet has allowed a generation of writers to find themselves there. In relation to writing and in relation to life some have found something. Some have also found something in relation to both writing and to life. Paris allowed a generation. The internet allows a generation. Megan Boyle is part of that generation. That is a good thing for her and for us.
