I Don’t Want To Miss Any Of It

I finally managed to pick up a copy of Pilot the other day, and as expected, it’s amazing.
This little feature is on the very last page of the mag, as part of a feature called ‘These Are Our Friends’, where they ask a few of their pals to write a short para about anything and everything, to give their opinion on something. The one that stuck out to me was this piece by Glenn Williams…

“Does every generation think they are living in a special time? The Occupy movement, climate change, population growth, food crisis, technology, immediate, global communication, expanding scientific knowledge… We’re going through a change, an evolution, a state of flux – whatever you call it, there’s something in the air right now. Something is going on. You can almost taste it. Some of it is tangible but most of it isn’t. Maybe it’s the result of information and facts being delivered in real time that means we can all feel much closer, much more involved in what’s going on in the world around us. Whatever it is, the status-quo is being challenged. Are we living in a particularly important moment in time, or does every generation feel like they’re collectively on the cusp of something big? Is this how our parents felt in the 60’s? Are we the ones who will change the world – or is massive change always just around the corner, forever out of reach? Either way, this is an exciting time to be alive. I don’t want to miss any of it.”

So, wow, does that just put into words what everyone is feeling lately?
