When you go away from this place for three weeks, away to a place with no cell phone use, no long distance access and non stop media in your face, it changes you. If only temporarily.
I got back on Sunday. Still relaxed. Still peaceful.
Now I'm surrounded by urban overdrive. I am in complete contradiction to my environment. It feels like being stoned but without the paranoa. I walk down the street, but really I'm floating. Everything around me is going way way too fast to even consider engaging in.
This can't last. Can it?
Is this how it feels to live in Ohio?
It saddens me to realize the level of anxiety, stress and fear that I usually function on from day to day.
Maybe I need to pack up.
