What am I feeling right now?
I just got a letter from an old friend.
I’m intrigued. Too excited. I had to put it down.
I glance at it and speed read it. I want to swallow it whole, like the handfuls of jelly beans that I never eat one at a time.
I try again. The first words tickle, how lovely.
I think about how few words there are on the page and I think about how rare these moments are. The letter lies there, unbridled, full of potential to be sublime. Better not mess this up, it’s special.
