That "second" is one of two things: hearing/seeing something that gave you joy to last a lifetime, or hearing/seeing something that instantly devastates you. Either way, it seems infinite. It defines you, at least until you have another "second" that gives you another definition. alice in wonderland quote.
<3....the hard part is stopping. then really absorbing the greatness in nature...in people...it is actually quite astounding and peaceful. it is our minds that hold too much clutter just stop, breathe and look around. <3
