Life Stretches Before Me Like An Endless Mystery

I feel the heartbeat of the world...

She slid around the corner like she was gliding across a pond.

"There's a softness in the world tonight," she said. "A power and a smell. A glistening sense of possibility."

I looked around, unable to sense anything. "Is there?"

"Yes. Definitely. Right here."

And she pointed. So I looked.

And saw nothing.

But I didn't say that. I didn't want to annoy her.

Later, she glided away. Back to her car.

And I sat in the diner. Listening for the glistening.

Still hearing nothing.

But somehow sensing it was there.

And... wanting to believe.

Cool! I'd never seen this video before.

Chick violinists on the beach rule.
