Solstice midnight has just passed, and it feels like time is standing still. I know this feeling. At 12:00 on the new year, time will grind back into motion. But now, now is the time for reflection, for auld lang syne.
I feel like I am moving through jelly, like the one still person in a time lapse video. I am inside myself, my thoughts, and standing outside observing at the same time.
And all around the world whizzes past, never noticing.
