Keep Paying Attention, Little Amoeba

Jul 29, 2020

“Most people don’t even care about owning magic. Most people don’t even care about feeling things, soaking in sadness and glory until their skin sparkles. Most people don’t care to look up at the sky, or feel its weight pressing on them. Most people don’t stop in the middle of the sidewalk to take a picture of the clouds parting and sunshine streaming out, and wonder if some mysterious god is peeking down to say, “KEEP PAYING ATTENTION, LITTLE AMOEBA.” Don’t let your reflexive regret tell you that your porous boundaries are something to be ashamed of. “ —Heather Havrilesky
