" side by side "

---

it's important to not feel alone in this world. you can be assured that you are not the only person on the planet, so there is in a very literal way, no way you will absolutely be alone. perhaps there is a comfort in that.

we are brought up, raised from the floor to the sky, and find our way through curiosity and encouragement into the wide unknown. some are free and free of cares or responsibilities. some go far but never evolve. some falter, some stand still. and some succeed.

to whichever measure of living life makes a child into an adult, we are here. we are present and have emotional depths, and have a casual demand to be recognized. we are beside each other and in this whole grand experience/experiment together. and there is a great comfort in that.

tonight's homework:

look to the left, look to the right, find your people, hold on tight.
