The Dead Line [Link]

I seriously love Eddie Smith's writing:

I'm convinced the worst part of drowning is right now—the fear of it… the conscious mind's simulation of the process of drowning. This uninformed, and hence fearful mind, imagines a frantic fight to stay above an infinitesimal line at which the bottom-most layer of our atmosphere sits on the top-most layer of water—that dividing line between the future, rising up infinitely high overhead and the deepest, darkest depths below.

This might be the best thing I've read so far this year. It's not pretentious or preachy. It's thoughtful and introspective. I'm glad Eddie took the time out of his own short timeline to write and post these contemplations.
