18 Seconds

Amazing to tour a news studio.  Monitors everywhere.  And a central monitor counting web traffic.  Counting top stories, daily peaks. Average time readers spend on each story? 18 seconds.

And the sunrise that same day, that morning, was beautiful. Bright. Crisp fall day. Too good to actually be shoe horned into language.

“18 Seconds.”  I wonder where we are going. So fast. Writing for things to be scanned not read.

And the sunrise. Different. Peace. Calm. That reminder that God is here too. A deeper movement, something beyond 18 seconds.
