my latest trance is now going on hour no. 64. i can’t seem to step out of it, walk away from it. i’m in it. very deeply in it.
i can’t say it’s meditative, contemplative, tranquil or effervescent. i can’t describe it with any hyperbole. i’m in a trance and that is as far as my understanding will take me.
some people just do not seem to comprehend that the person they encounter is somebody who might be in a trance. perhaps they are walking around within their own trances.
maybe that explains why we are constantly colliding on the sidewalks. clinging to our smartphones as if they are remote controls. but the navigation systems are all askew. compass interference. hence, the colliding.
yet the impact of the collision does not awaken any of us from our trances. i wonder what will it take.
About The Lost Pedestrian
In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me).
My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
