Symbolism

So today was a pretty introspective day for me… i dont know, life just seemed so great today.. i mean, i’m not complaining — i’m glad it was. And so for this entire day, I’ve just been thinking about how we can easily turn intrinsically rudimentary actions into symbolic deeds of substantial merit. In other words, it’s amazing to see how locking fingers together with a loved one can convey the interconnectedness and intimacy that they share with each other.. or how keeping somebody company reveals an infallible commitment to friendship.. stuff like that exists all around us, and those connections can be made rather instantly if one desires.

That’s who we are — we’re symbol-using creations, able to make significant that which inherently has no meaning. That in and of itself symbolizes our greatness as a human race. Pretty cool, huh?
