the simple life

The will to communicate

"Unless we have the will to communicate, there's no connection"
- Dance Dance Dance, Haruki Murakami

My mom was telling me how Milou lacks the language to communicate with us.

That is true.

However, there's a will to communicate here. He wants us to know that he's hungry, wants to play, wants to pee and poo, wants a treat and wants a good rub. We want him to behave, stop chewing furniture and clothes and pee and poo in selected spots.

Communication is more difficult than I imagine but the will is there. I just have to hang in there.

There are friends and people around me that I have no will to communicate with. Yes, we have common languages, sms, email, chat and all sorts of useful technology. But absolutely no will to communicate.

Life is ironic.
