Driving home, I had a seven or eight year old kid who wasn't really there run off the median and into traffic right at my car. He was so very present that I focused on him, stopped talking to [livejournal.com profile] kenilyn, felt my heart speed up, and had my foot coming off the gas. It was a few heartbeats, no more. Than I realized that the kid was more on the glass than behind it, and then he more or less disappeared out of the center lane, right before he would have reached my car.

I think the incidents that have no apparent relevance to me are more disturbing to me than those that do. There's no closure.
