I fully relate with what you are trying to portray to us here.. or rather, I feel as if you are talking about being consumed by reading so much that everything else just faded away, hence how everything else stops mattering, as mentioned in this piece.
Great use of the six word story form. I like how the brevity matches the intensity of what you're describing to us here.
This one I can really identify with, I had trouble learning to read until 8th grade and then it was like a switch clicked in my head and by the time I was in 10th grade I was reading at collage freshman level, my teachers could not understand what happened. And ever since reading has been my escape. Thank You ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Keep you sense of curiosity, Mystery and Wonder alive.
