That You Are Here

When I was 16 I would go to used bookstores. One day I picked up a leather bound copy of “Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman.

I remember having it on me at the mall one day, and I was reading it sitting on a bench, surrounded by crowds. I was reading “I Sing The Body Electric”, and I felt the earth open up beneath my feet. I had never read anything that made me feel the immensity of life’s possibilities before. It changed me.

This ad moves me and gives me chills similar to how I felt all those years ago.
