IVP3- Margot Mausner

We live in a goal oriented society.
People are constantly aiming for success and wealth
and somewhere in the process of growing up, getting an education 
a family, a job... we lose sight of things.
We go through the motions
day to day
never stopping to think or look around
at all that life has to offer
We walk the same paths 
apathetically placing one foot in front of the next
determined to get from point A to point B

Even in a location as simple as the bus stop
these behaviors are readily visible as people
wait and board the bus in an almost robotic manner

I tried to emphasize this idea of a careless
existence, of a society that has removed itself from
the little pleasures in life by fast forwarding our already
fast paced life style.  

"Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."- Eddie Cantor
