there could be a global game of freeze tag. Time would stand still, for everything and everyone but me, of course. I would sleep for a whole day. I would read books. I would ride my bike as far as I could peddle. I would download 100 new songs. I would write letters on actual paper. I would pray. I would finally print 5 years worth of photos and put them in scrapbooks. I would go through the stuff I took when Mom moved off the farm and linger over the papers in her handwriting. Then I would go give John a hug and that would break the spell. The special people in my life would receive the letters I had written to them on actual paper and they would know how much they mean to me.
