so there i am sitting. amongst noise, music, laughter, people, cocktails...and a thought rollicks across my radar screen, distracting me from everything physical and immediate. this demanding thought above all others. an image. of a person. who i've never met. i say to myself, how silly. it's only your imagination. but the stranger says hello. here i am. somewhere in the ether of imagination, i meet the stranger. i say, is this for real? or is this a wayward thought? and the stranger laughs and says this is for real.
it's all completely weird.
and makes me shake my head in wonder. and laugh.
don't ask me how it works. but there you were.
