Thanks, Capt.

Preoccupied with mindfulness, I forced a character I was developing for my novel to be paralyzed for one minute twice a day, at 10:10 and 1:50. She can only see but not react to anything around her. I noticed one day that the time was 10:10 when I came home. Stopping and staring out the slider door, I watched a wren sidestepping along the top of the fence, at the same time on the lot behind him, a construction worker was making the same movements, each of them unaware of the other one.
