During these times of frozen iguanas, global pandemic and looming locusts, we have all been looking for distractions from the real world. In other time, the word distraction may have held a slightly negative connotation. People getting distracted and not being productive was often noted as an issue. People being distracted by their phones at the dinner table has been widely lamented. Distractions had been too distracting for society.
Fast forward to now. To today. Distractions are good. We want distractions from some of this oppressive reality. Although, many will note we should not allow ourselves to get too distracted considering everything that is occuring right now. We should not get complacent. We get that. However, considering the heavy weight of now, we needed distractions.
Things have escalated further in terms of what is on our collective shoulder. As a result, now we need distractions for our original distractions. We need multi-level distractions. Layered distractions. It is as if we have to have a bank of distractions. Hopefully, this distractions bank gets readily replenished.
