Sometimes my mind fades to a point where everything seems pointless…so much so that I eventually lose any inclination to want to do anything. It happened again today. While driving, I felt like taking my foot off the accelerator and just sitting back waiting for the car to eventually slow down and stop. Where it stopped, I didn’t care. If it moved, I didn’t care. If it crashed, I didn’t care. I simply didn’t care at all. But my niece was with me, so I’ll have to consider succumbing to those thoughts another time. Until then, the numb feeling of nothing will be nurtured until it overtakes me completely.
