COMMOTION


David once said that people think “motion” is a noun, but a noun is an object, and how can you objectify motion? You cannot draw it, or touch it, or hold it, or make it into something else. You cannot put it into a box nor can you embrace it or slap it in the face. You cannot put a hat on it or have sex with it. Motion is neither created nor destroyed. Motion is, or not. How can we possibly understand this noun, this beautiful noun, for a noun is what is is. Let us all, David said, stop moving. Let us cease. We saw his point, we thought it grand, but we did not. But David did, and we, still, we did not.
