I’ve been playing Pitfall! lately. There’s a new version for the iPhone and iPad. It’s basically the same as the original: you run and avoid death. Death by snakes, scorpions, alligators and pits. Last night as I was dreaming of racing through the jungle, I thought “Fuck. This is like my life.”
And while I was my life was filled with leaping and the dodging of scorpions, this is meant to be a metaphor.
Well. Simile. I did say LIKE my life.
Always on the run. No time to settle in. Always moving on to the next project with the unknown just around the corner.
But there is no time for stopping. No time to rest. Need the energy to leap over some alligators.
Lets hope the alligators are metaphorical.
