Down but Not Defeated
In the end we're all strangers. We're nostalgic for a past viewed through rose-colored lenses. Clear your mind; drive aimlessly and allow the thoughts to collect and pour from you without remorse. Find a place off the beaten path and claim it as your own. Close your eyes and listen to the world around you. Be in the moment. Recall the past and then leave it there, for good. I spent some time in my 'spot' tonight--at the edge of the dock where all the streetlights reflect onto the water and curl in towards me at once. In the end I reached a simple conclusion: Life is full of bullshit, but there is power in our ability to brave the storm.
