IMAGE_007i hate lines.  i hate waiting.  unless it’s a camp out in line, those can be pretty fun.  traffic is just 5 or 6 lines not going anywhere with people thinking they can just skip you if you give them enough room, sometimes with not enough room.  it took me and my roommate 4 or 5 hours to get inside the georgia dome for american idol auditions only to realize we had assigned seats for the order of our auditions.  whack!

however, i’m not just going to hate on lines.  they actually do a lot of good.  they keep order, they make things fair (people who got here before others will be able to do whatever it is before the later people), they give you time to slow down in a fast-paced world, etc.

i remember learning about lines in elementary school.  they told us that lines were infinite.  i was like, no way!!  there’s a line right there!  it’s not infinite!  i seriously thought my teachers were going crazy.  either that, or i thought maybe i’ve been learning it wrong this whole time.  if lines were infinite, then what was i drawing before?  ahh, yes.  line segment.  i see.  things make sense again.

lines tell if a ball is in play or out of play.  lines give actors freedom of expression.  lines make dancers amazing to watch.  lines keep you writing in a straight pattern.  lines prevent traffic accidents (for the most part).  lines tell you peoples’ ages.  lines create artwork.  lines compose symphonies.  lines perform poetry.  lines supply power.

what else do lines do?

  1. Drawing lines is setting limits. Setting limits is choosing. Choosing is a manifestation of love.

    Lines show love. Like the two lines that form the cross.
