Two words: worn out. Can you relate? I know I can. Between work, Twitter, Facebook, film projects, music vid cameos, Kelly, and this blog, I'm spent by the end of the day. Sometimes I forget that I'm just a real person, not a Disney tween star. I feel a lot like this frayed tire -- weak and overused. The photographer here has made a bold choice by placing the center of interest in the middle of the picture. Normally I'd laugh at such an amateurish move, but somehow it works. It slaps us on the mouth with its meaning, without being too much. Like a human body, a tire is complex and made up of different layers molded together to give it strength. However after time, they come apart due to pressure. Tires aren't magic, and neither are we. The only exceptions I can think of are Regis Philbin and Jennifer Aniston. But for the rest of us the message is clear: decelerate, and take a minute to cool down before we run too thin in today's age of ubiquitous non stop activity.
