Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.
-Edgar Allan Poe


Close your eyes and count to ten.
For once in your life just listen.

Listen to what’s around you.

The car honking its horn at a stupid driver.
The neighbors playing in their pool next door.
The sound of my pen scratching on paper.
The sound of a page turning.

You know what that is?
It’s life.
And you just wasted ten seconds of it.
