If you were to query 100 people to tell you how they feel, I bet 90 wouldn’t be able to. There are no words at the moment that can accurately capture this moment. Well, sure there are words such as anxiety-riddled, angry, scared, and confused. But those feel empty and cliche. We all use them because the vocabulary well is near empty.
Our collective chests feel tight and cold. And, no hot compress eases the pain. Thus, we talk and talk and talk. However, none of that talking seems truly actionable. What do we do with empty words? We watch a man and a tiger. We come up with random “what if” games. We dance by ourselves.
