When I was seventeen, I went to an amusement park and got on one of those rotor rides. After we were spinning fast enough, and the bottom dropped out, I was pinned to the wall of the barrel. I felt simultaneously weightless and anchored, real and unreal. The same thing happens sometimes when I see leaves rustling in the breeze. As if everything else is alien, even a little sinister, except those leaves.
