If there ever was a place of overstimulation it’s Times Square! The lights, people, sounds, colors, smells, and sheer energy make it a melting pot for the sensations. In small bursts I love it! Being there jolts me to realize just how over stimulating a world we live in. I love to check out the online news, but often cringe when I get there because many of the stories have been packaged for maximum emotional blow about things that years ago we never would have heard about. With so much stimulation, the media now has to push the limits of socially accepted content to win over viewers, and in the process, we are all being habituated to seeing truly terrifying events as sound bites that come and go. I worry greatly for Trevor and what this means for his future.
