Stone mind

There are duplicable moments when I want to especially concentrate on writing a sentence, and I slow down enough to focus on each letter: neatly, the pen scribs out the words near-clean and fine. I remind myself to breathe, just in case.

The result isn’t completely straight lines, but something’s going on up there. The feeling is pseudo-detachment, as if I am observing my arm go through its motion – and that only on the periphery, since I’m staring at the letter being made.

I’m certain people have experienced this. Before I heard of ASMR, people had it. Two words: Bob Ross. And trance? Yeah, frission. But those feelings are more of a “brain buzz.” This sensation during slow writing is more of a “mind void.”
