Regular, repeated patterns of movement or sound
Anxious creatures like us find comfort in repetition,
Our little minds insist on coming up with patterns, schedules, timetables
To be able to live each day like the previous
Not straying too far into the unknown,
Because that makes us uneasy.
We can’t determine what lies in the unknown,
We’re uncomfortable there because for the first time in our lives –
We wouldn’t have a plan lying ahead of us
And that is what makes us anxious.
We’re anxious creatures
We find comfort in rhythm
We don’t like change
Yet change remains a part of our rhythm.
