We live in a donkey with a carrot world. Today’s Western society gives us little means to fill those huge shoes it has prepared for us. The toll gets higher and higher and we feel the need to live up to our parents, teachers and politicians expectations. Why? Because we are human and it is normal to want to be accepted, appreciated and have a sense of belonging.
Miss Harden passes by lonely little houses, dead animals and she even gets lost at one point. We, humans, became who we are now because we formed a society. We are not really good at living alone in the middle of a vast plateau. We tend to get disorientated and panic when we loose the beacon. Luckily for her (and for us), Klara found her way back. She’s got her victory. For the moment.
That being said, please don’t just stay there waiting for the depression to catch up with you. Go conquer something, do something you can be proud of. You don’t have to be perfect, just get a sense of purpose and live a trail behind you. Others will come to build the motorway, don’t worry about that.
