I was in line at a local Shop-Rite buying my frozen pizza and carrots while a television pumped colorful images, flashing at me as I stood there. Loud and overwhelming I reached to shut it off, but the buttons were locked. So I was forced to endure advertisements and images of items I might want to all of sudden, buy; items, that I might all of a sudden, need.
When consumed by noise from the world there is no time for my needs.
As I pumped gas last Saturday at Mobil they too have a television monitor pumping more uninvited information: advertisements flickering across my life, flickering everywhere I go.
However, there is only so much time in the day to hear myself, and I must listen, closely.
