i was sitting on my porch this evening, looking up towards the sky and realized that no matter where i am (at least in my neighborhood), just 20 ft above my head, are power lines. maybe this isn't an astounding revelation, certainly an obvious one, but these wires have become so normal i don't even notice that, at all times, electricity is vibrating above me. at all times. and it's normal. i don't even notice them. that's so weird. and unsettling.
