David Foster Wallace

No time is passing outside you at all. It is amazing. The late ballet below is slow motion, the overbroad movements of mimes in blue jelly. If you wanted you could really stay here forever, vibrating inside so fast you float motionless in time, like a bee over something sweet. —David Foster Wallace, from “Forever Overhead,” The David Foster Wallace Reader. (Little, Brown and Company; 1St Edition edition November 11, 2014)
