If you have never felt it then you will never understand but those of you that have will instantly recognise the feeling.
Those moments when the time seems to slow and you become aware that for some reason you are waiting. Waiting for life to change, waiting for it to start, waiting for the storm to come and tear your world asunder forcing you to move from the island. The island created by you.
