I wanted to comment on the frustration of the incredible sameness, but my mind is in a warp right now where I am challenging even my own perception of the incredible sameness. What IS the incredible sameness of life? It is where each day follows the same pattern of the day before and the day before and the day before just as it will follow in the day after and the day after. It is a pattern that works when you live with a pack so they know what to expect. The sameness is occassionally punctuated by a rainstorm at meal time or the arrival of new people or my leaving to run an errand. But generally, their world is dictated by this sameness.
However, I, as a member of the human race, seem to rail against this sameness sometimes. I want to see the water circle the drain in the other direction. I want to NOT feed at the end of the afternoon. I want to NOT do everything just as I did yesterday. I want to sleep in, watch movies at 4:30 in the afternoon. Hell, I want THEM to do for me!
I think it’s hormonal. I think it’s mental, emotional, physical and financial. It’s moving forward, yet remaining in the same place. Each day the same… the incredible sameness.
