"A few times in my life thus far I've had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh.
I can never make these moments last.
I cling to them, but like everything, they fade.
I have lived my life on these moments.
They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."
