Life's a blur

"Perpetual motion the image won't focus
A blur is all that's seen
But here in this moment like the eye of the storm
It all came clear to me."

-- Rise Against, "Ready to Fall"

 “I toss and turn so much in my sleep 
that the very act of sleeping must be exhausting for me. 
Sleeping makes me want to sleep even more.

-- Jarod Kintz, So many chairs, and no time to sit

“As long as I stared at the clock, at least the world remained in motion. 
Not a very consequential world, but in motion nonetheless. 
And as long as I knew the world was still in motion, I knew I existed. 
Not a very consequential existence, but an existence nonetheless. 
It struck me as wanting that someone should confirm his own existence 
only by the hands of an electric wall clock. 
There had to be a more cognitive means of confirmation. 
But try as I might, nothing less facile came to mind.”

-- Haruki Murakami, A Wild Sheep Chase
