IT'S AN ILLUSION


"What do you get passionate about?"
"Nothing."
"No, really."
"Really, nothing."
"But there are things that fire you up, that get you excited. What are they?"
Adam shrugged. "Transitory things."
"Transitory things? That sounds grim."
"Not really. It's just..."
"It's just what?"
Adam shrugged again. "It's all an illusion. It's playing the game. Going through the motions."
"Is that all it is to you?"
"What?"
"Life."
"Yea, kind of. Nothing really matters. It's all transitory, soon forgotten."
Silence.
"Are you depressed?"
Adam shrugged yet again. "No. Maybe. Does it matter?"
"It matters. It matters to me."
"It's all so much shit."
Silence.
Adam snorted. "Now THAT sounds like a depressive!"
