I’m not running from my problems

Instead I’m swimming in opportunity the more they get presented to me. I never thought this would be easy. And the harder it seems to get, the more I look for a way out. I’m sorry I’ve been distant.

I’m thinking about Death tonight

and how I wish I had forever with everyone. I see those around me age with not a thought about it while others watch the clock and grieve every second that passes.

Are you being Here Now?

Hello My Loves, I see it is time to expand and reach your eyes. My question to you is, are you Being Here Now?
