Thinking of the West

Do you ever feel like going out into the middle of nowhere and screaming as loud as you can? For the past three days I’ve had this nervous energy where all I want to do is scream and yell and thrash my head and run until I can’t run anymore. My body is seeking an exhilarating freedom it can’t get in an office cube or on a subway car. I want to reach my hands up to the clouds and spin in the night until the stars look like streaming ashes from a firework. I want to jump off a cliff into freezing cold water. I want to swim to the bottom of the ocean and only come up for air when I can’t hold my breath for another second. That would feel really good right now.
