It begins as a creeping thought. Like an itch.

Easy to ignore, difficult to locate.

It graduates into an illness, and soon your mind is stuck on replay.

Like a swarm of butterflies with needles in their mouths.

I Lived!

I lived. I lived. I lived. 

I know that eight billion others exist alongside me. 

I know that others have come and gone before me. 

I know it has all been said before in different ways and phrases.

I know that in the picture of space and time we are smaller than a spec.


Yet this is the beauty of our humanity.

That we can cycle through life enjoying what has always been enjoyed. 

Thus, I will not get lost in mundane thoughts. 

I will not get stuck in mediocrity.

One and all eight billion will know! 

I lived. I lived. I lived!

I played the part of the architect generation and how I am happy to see the delusion, the reality and all the glamour of everything and how it seems to all play into my grand plan. As such, I titled it. A THOUSAND MEGAPIXELS. Enjoy. Continue reading A Thousand MegaPixels
