Here There and Everywhere

Lack of Resistance

I can feel it starting. I walk into the Mall and my senses go into overload. The colors, the lights, the decorations, the window displays – I am starting to pant with eagerness.

I’m not even a mall shopper! I am just killing time waiting for the Apple shop to open . . . but oh! Look! The Macy’s Christmas shop is open. And oh my! They are having a two hour sale, 40% off!

I have no resistance. I am like a moth to the flame.


I had to take this one for Purg:


I can’t stop taking photos! I’m in sensory overload!
