a comfortable distance

things can be so different when slowed down. When you take the speed down on a song, you almost stop hearing for what it is at it's original speed...it seems to become more of a mood than a song. On a road trip this weekend I noticed how weird it is to look out the window to the mountains along side the road. And though i'm driving fast, it's like the mountains moved at just a fraction of the speed i traveled at. The juxtaposition of the two things weirds me out a bit. Running on the beach, the same thing happens when looking out over the water. My mind gets lost in whatever i'm looking at anything in the distance; it feels like i'm barely moving. The combination of things moving both quick & slow at the same time. Those are moments i question if things are real - sometimes life feels like a movie
