i have often wondered why it is that i notice these things, more so, find significance in them rather that the more overt displays that we humans are so keen to do. considering how much more effort one has to exercise to process these many minuscule accounts, surely, i would sometimes think, surely there is something more to these things than them just being mere incidentals, by-products of the lives we lead.
maybe i just like to be difficult, and add a few more layers to the abundantly complex life i already lead.
maybe i just like to be different, and do things others don't do, even if it's utterly unnecessary.
but as i spot and observe the million and one small slivers that we humans unconsciously give out amidst the gamut that is our gross actions. as i sense and feel and realize and appreciate the small things that i do see, i cannot help it but feel glad that i do, for in learning to acknowledge what people often do not pay much attention to, you learn many things people also do not know:
like how a brush of the knee can be excruciating and yet, euphoric;
like how a hug can send you to heaven and then to hell at the same time.

amidst a tumultuous sea of uncertainties, finding this one nugget of truth in all of it was truly worth the arduous swim.
