Document little glimpses of connection in a chaotic world.
E.g. people closing their laptops and looking into each others eye for a minute, people synchronizing their steps, movement, breath or sound.

When we over-index on documenting our lives, or infuse it with the aesthetic of cinema, scoring the climaxes, editing out the in-betweens that make up a life, we risk inverting its utility.

We end up believing things about our former selves that weren’t quite true, or doing it for the gram, or missing a hike before it’s even over. In our search for meaning we obscure it.
