“Every glance, a business deal.” Each personal encounter converted into units of (distorted) value. But what happens “when the attention starts to wane?” We push harder, with desperate and frantic energy, and wear everyone out. Being TRANSPARENT turns from being warm and candid to cold and blatant.
“You should have kept your victories safe, instead of tangled in the ticker tape.”
