Mid-chase, I have forgotten who or what it was I’ve been trying so hard to catch. Heavily winded and distracted by the demands of everyday life, the focus of the pursuit is lost.
But when you have been going for so long, how do you stop? The momentum is too strong, and I keep running toward something now unknown. I can’t even be sure I’m heading in the right direction. In part, I am standing still, never making progress. And elsewhere, I am still running so fast that I can’t see what flashes by.
