Sure, we’re big dumb animals, but what are you going to do?
It’s not like you can stop being human. I guess you can identify as a dog if that’s your thing, but it’s not going to really change much.
So we may as well embrace the fact that we’re broken animals and make the most of it. Use those thumbs to grab a pencil, paint brush, or instrument and make some music. Even better: Grab somebody (even yourself) and make some love.
The fact that we’re big dumb animals doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ourselves, and what’s more enjoyable than a good playlist?
