I don't know what it is about nothingness that's so exhilirating for me. To know that there is nothing in sight – no Walmarts or hotels, or bad drivers causing rush hour. There's also nothing blocking my view. Nothing needlessly clouding my mind with its message to buy something, eat something, follow a street, etc. I can do whatever I want, and that includes nothing. That especially includes nothing. I can rest in the nothingness and do nothing and think nothing, and it's weightless. It is freedom, because in a way, freedom is nothingness, isn't it?
