A life is befriended through living it and telling stories about it, elevating, trying to make meaning out of it. In short, art. Life is befriended through art.

Though experiment:

Imagine I was born this day. Inside a room. Imagine I was born conscious, able to walk. Imagine, it was here when I realized that life is inherently meaningless. Death thru my own hands makes the most sense.

But instead of death, I decided to befriend life. I befriend life by living it. And living is action, movement. I befriend life by moving. And reject death, inaction.

We befriend life by moving, choosing to live, continuing even if to stop is a lot easier. Like we befriend a place by moving. Walking. Kissing it through our feet.

See walking is understanding place through body.

Understand -> philosophy Live -> ethics Create -> poetics
