Yesterday’s newspaper. Are you caught in old news?

Yesterday I picked up the newspaper and was intrigued by what I read on the front page. The headlines were captivating. The story kept me interested. I couldn’t stop reading and rereading it. I didn’t want to put the newspaper down. It was as if every word was a drug and I the junkie.

I was so immersed in the story that I forgot what I had actually gone out to do. It didn’t matter one bit anymore either. I had lost my way and entered another realm. There was excitement, surprise, passion and so much more in this story. I spent hours with it but I soon developed a massive headache.

I began to realize that I had imagined myself in the plot. I was the main character. All attention was focused on me. It was all in my imagination! This couldn’t exist in my reality. I would never know those I was reading about. It was nothing more than black ink on soft white paper. I had let my mind wander very far. I knew it was time to let go. I had held on long enough to my fantasy–the story in my mind. So I folded up the paper and left it for someone else to read.

You see it is now today and you are just yesterday’s old newspaper.
