Scouring my mental alleyways.

I’ve been keeping a writer’s notebook for a little while. Or, as I sometimes call it, my ‘Little Black Book’. And now feels like a good time to look through it, for some blogging inspiration. I invented a word, and now feels like a good time for something organic and freeflow:

Hyperception. Feeling the spaces between moments, a golden whisky-tint to your senses. Hearing the hum of the refrigerator for the first time, feeling your bones shake as a truck grumbles past, outside. Intimately aware, extremely detached. Epitome and clarity. Floating on every buffet of air, every vortex and sound. Feeling the flow, the ebb of existence in the tips of your fingers, the soles of your feet. You smile, and feel like the world is smiling with you. The moment is crystalline, perfect.

But it too passes. Fades like a lover’s kiss, leaving you with reality’s angularities to contend with. Not bad, just… concrete. It will return, though. A honey trap to encase those perfect moments.

And a taste of honey always leaves you wanting more.

    I love this idea. I feel like I’m constantly seeking hyperception lately, those moments of still. Nice piece.

'Quintconsequential' is a word of my own invention, despite the definition in the style of the Oxford English Dictionary featured on the site. By all means, use it, whisper it, shout it from the rooftops. But please, remember that you heard it here first!
