Past, present and future are all there at once. Childhood memories, who is and isn’t there today and hopes for better tomorrows roll back and forth stirring connections and provoking strong emotions that cannot be put into words. Disappointments and regrets churn with pure, clear joy like a roller coaster with deep plummets followed by rocket-powered ascents.
As in any strong emotional moment, surrendering to the flow, the current, the maelstrom is the only way to live, to survive, to acknowledge our deepest and most profound parts.
Accept and go with the flow.
It’s OK to be a creature.
