I love background noise. There is so much life and energy, so many stories floating around. In one sense I wish I could dissect it all, in the moment that it exists. Take it apart and examine each component, discover their secrets and histories. But on the other hand I don’t want to do so, for there is a certain beauty in the cacophony, each sound lending and assigning meaning to the other. The noise is a dialogue on human life, one that is constantly in flux and conveying something more akin to truth than anything we could purposefully create.
