Who are you? What’s your name? What do you do? How old are you? Are you really? Are you in school? Do you have a job? What are you? Where do you go to school? Have you ever walked up the stairs so fast your calves are as tight and hard as the rocks of the Grand Canyon? Did you know that the Grand Canyon is still being shaped? Isn’t that so cool? Do you like to travel? Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon? Did you go to the north or south rim? Where would you want to go? Is Europe worth visiting, with all that history and culture and people? Can you taste a difference in the air? Can you tell you’re in a different country, or is it just the same with different climates and people? Do you feel like a foreigner? Do you ever feel like you don’t fit in? Have you ever sat in a room full of people and just know you’re not one of those people? Does that make you less human, to not have a connection with people? If we’re all the same, how come we aren’t? Are you meticulous or are you spontaneous? Have you ever jumped off a cliff into the ocean as the wind pushes through your ears as you close your eyes and hope for the best? Have you ever taken a midnight walk? Isn’t the world at night eerie and wonderful at the same time? What’s your favorite planet? Do you ever think about the stars? Don’t you think space is weird? How are there universes and galaxies and planets and suns and black holes and dark matter and energy that we know basically nothing about? What is really out there? Is it like the deepest, darkest part of the ocean where we can’t get to it now, but we might in the future? Is it possible? Space doesn’t end but is there a point where we can’t go any further or study anything past a certain point because we can’t reach it? Do you think that there are different elements that we haven’t even recognized as different? What is different? Are you different? What music do you listen to? Do you like oldies? What about hip hop? Is there music you absolutely hate? Who do you hate? How is it possible to hate someone? Do you really hate them or do you just hate the things that they do? Is it cold in here or is it just me? Shouldn’t it be getting colder outside now that it’s fall? Don’t you think fall is the best time of year, with all the colors and leaves and breezy air and pumpkins? If you could live in a specific season for the rest of your life, what would you choose? Do you think you would get tired of your favorite time of year? Do we really need opposites to be happy? Can’t we live in a moment without fear of the opposing forces working against us? Isn’t that more a physics problem, opposing forces? What really happens when you jump in the air? Are we suspended in a specific place, or does that place move because the earth is moving? Do we land in the same place or is it slightly different? Isn’t the world weird? Don’t you think it’s strange? Does is scare you or does it intrigue you? Do you want to know more or do you want to let the world happen without fear of knowledge of the unknown? How are you doing? How old are you, again? What do you do? I’m so sorry, what’s your name, again?
