Ask Baba Yaga: What Do People See In My Boredom?

Baba boredom

Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

People sometimes tell me I look upset when I’m really just bored. Do they see something in me that I am blind to?

BABA YAGA:

Boredom is like the rot in a wet stump-top: the rain, gathering in that little well, makes possible the decay the cells are given to. ,What is it in you that makes you stagnate so easily? ; Stir the dead water & watch deep.
