I'm watching the sun set from my desk. I stare a little too long and I can't see my screen anymore, just a big ball of orange light. Writing blind. I do that sometimes- write without looking at the page/screen. There's something about writing freely without worrying about the grammar or punctuation—allowing sentences to trail off when an idea has broken or you've run out of page. Not to get philosophical, but life might be better if we lived like that once in a while. It's cathartic to go a day, or even an hour or two, not worrying about what you're wearing or how you are perceived by others. It's exhausting to always be on, to always be correct. Sometimes it's okay to let yourself trail off the page for a bit.
