drive time ramblings.

>>play>>

this morning i found myself driving.
it was that peaceful 
pre-rush hour, pre-dawn time
and it was amazing.
as i moved and turned with the road
i watched the sky gradually lighten
and my heart smiled.

despite the overwhelming stress
and uncertainty about my future,
i am happy.

i should be stressed.
time is ticking and i need to make a 
concrete decision by tonight.
i should be freaking out.

instead, 
i find myself calm.
it's like a scene in a movie
where everything is cranked up to lightning speed
and the lead is just standing there,
letting everyone fly by.

i'm sitting here,
eating a peanut butter + jelly sandwich
at 8:17 in the morning
and perfectly content with life.

the freaking out will eventually start.
but right now, it's gone.
i'm untouchable.
i'm infinite.
