Annoying Thoughts on the 4th of July

Posted on July 4, 2017 at 12:00pm 2 Comments

I try to stay focused on one thing. But I can't. I look at something and the more I look, the more I see. Maybe I am part insect. Their eyes are like a clear kaleidoscope. They see images in multiples upon multiples. Me too. It is cool and annoying.
