My entry in this week's Single Frame Stories Challenge
I swipe through a couple hundred news, blog and social network feeds every hour on my ever-present iPhone. It feels like I'm trying to keep up with the emerging present. But the underlying compulsion is more about running after the future.
I don't even read most of the items that interest me. They're sent directly to a service that archives stories for later reading. (Yeah. Right.) So I hunt. And I gather. But I never feast.
What would happen if I stopped investing so much time and energy in an imagined someday that never comes . . . If I stopped running after an event horizon that is impossible to ever reach?
I'm going to find out, because I'm tired of the chase.
