Chasing A FeelingI wrote a story long ago by the same title about missing the beach. I wanted that feeling of being on the sand, surfing the waves, and feeling the warm sun on my skin. If you love the beach, you know the feeling I speak of, and it is indeed worth the chase.
The concept has been circling in my head recently. Chasing a feeling.
Isn't that what we are all doing? Trying to find that feeling that brings us right to the edge? Makes us feel completely alive? It's a different search for each of us. We all have different needs. Some of us will bungee jump. Others will seek out an affair. Sometimes a book is all it takes to allow us to escape into another's world for just a little while.
Whatever it may be that fulfills this need, it is a constant chase. The state of being we're searching for cannot be maintained. Why is just 'being' not enough?
Maybe if we can answer that question, the chase can end.
Then again, maybe we really don't want it to end.
