The most extraordinary feeling you can ever feel is being lost in something. A few seconds of pure unconsciousness, being oblivious to your surroundings and feelings, but only aware of being astray. That feeling is rare. It comes alongside the things we notice the least, like dancing with heat to loud music, singing your favourite song out loud with passion, perhaps kissing someone and feeling a rush of heat in your stomach. Being frightened of something, like a fast car that almost hit you while you were crossing the street, or a fierce wave that crashed against your body and drowned you beneath the salt and the sand. Being lost does not necessarily mean losing your route, but it means losing your mind for a bit. Losing awareness. Consciousness. Focus. It’s healthy to get lost, it’s healthy to lose yourself in something. We all need to lose ourselves every now and then in order to find ourselves again. It’s significant to lose your care for the world every once in a while. It’s like surviving a car crash and recovering with a whole new mindset. It changes you, it changes your mindset and your lifestyle. So, get lost, even for a few minutes. Lose yourself.
Ben probably texted Martin while he is filming in Australia and maybe he was already sleeping at the time and didn’t reply right away and so Ben picks up the phone and decides to go to Sherlocked Con and as soon as he can he’s like: MARTIN NEVER TEXTS ME, NEVER CALLS, NEVER FACETIMES 😒
