A Conundrum of Self

Somehow, it feels like it's time to make choices now. Time to grow up. Time to settle on a future and dedicate yourself to it.

It's really hard when you absolutely love each of your options.

So...what now?

Peanut Breath

Have you ever noticed the dusty wisp that rises out of a peanut shell when it first cracks open?

Do you ever catch your face contorting like a mirror when you see someone expressing emotion on a movie?

Did you ever thank the person who taught you to read?

Have you ever wondered how your heart knows to quicken when that special someone smiles at you?

Did you try to lick your elbow that first time you heard that statistic about how many people can do it?

Have you ever felt alone in a crowd?

Have you ever felt like you’re not alone when you’re the only person around?

Have you ever picked a flower clean of its petals while muttering, “He loves me, he loves me not,” even when you knew the answer?

Do you ever wish you understood more?

Do you ever wish you didn’t know all that you do?

Have you ever wondered whether the colors other people see are the same as the ones you perceive?

Have you ever paused long enough to close your eyes and listen to your own heartbeat?
