they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

fresh eyes.

i always see things that aren't really there while i'm running.

from 30 strides away, a leaf looks like a squirrel, especially when it's hoping off the ground in the wind.

from a quarter mile away, a tree stump looks like a dog ready to attack. it's only as a get closer and more rational that i realize it's just the dead end of a tree that once was alive and thriving.

i used to get frustrated at all of these mirages. until today when i realized it's just a form of creativity. i mean, most people might have just seen a leaf. or a tree stump. but not me. not me.

and i am 100-percent standing behind the belief that this does not mean i'm paranoid. just extremely, out-of-the-box creative.
