Sleeping Beauty is a moment in time, frozen forever, in which death is there, looming, but never catching up with its victims. My imagination tells me that if I had five seconds left to live, I would grab the person I love and kiss them and that kiss would last forever, but I could just as easily collapse in fear and cry like a baby until it catches up to me. With five seconds left on the clock, what do you do? With an explosion coming into view, knowing that the aftershock will reach you in seconds, how do you spend those last seconds?
