" outside the universe while inside the universe "

beauty beauty beauty all around. the sun hangs low, and we see these brief moments where everything is in alignment.

you have to stop. you are compelled to revel in the scene. and it becomes so much more than the glimpse of initial interest.

you are moved. you are transported. you are beyond the curtain of reality, and nothing else matters in that instance. you can see beyond the ether; you find solace and fulfillment.

it can be silly things which draw you in, but the pattern and the lines, the way they intersect or parallel, sometimes barely touching which gives some places a near indescribable sense of true elegance.

tonight's homework:

keep an eye out for people, places, or objects which catch your eye. it will change your entire life to behold.

" to the time spent wisely "

as you find yourself at a moment of transition, one begins to realize all of the many things you did, people you've met and grown to love, or loved and lost. we always expect that things will turn out, that they happen for a reason, and that reason is a good one.

friendships flourish under strenuous tests of patience, distance, planning, and life just happening the way it happens. we can almost not take too much credit for the active chaos constantly swirling and whipping about our daily activities.

it's better yet to observe those beautifully meaningful passages of time where you were seen, where you were heard, and where something profound was exchanged, perhaps even if it were the most simple phrase which turned strangers into family.

or was it a single whisper. or was it a shared silence.

we live our lives to the best of our ability, love to the fullest & highest capacity our bodies and hearts may muster. we live for truths, honesty, bravery, kinship, understanding, patience, beauty, delight, joy, and love.

we've had the loveliest time, this time, and in the time we shared, not one moment was i ever ill-prepared for your departure from this city. but i am not surprised or hurt. only the aches and pains of a friend increasing the level of negative proximity, which in this case is parallel to an ever-expanding sense of pride and happiness for your future adventuring.

we go with you in spirit where our bodies may not follow, and in the final days, hours, minutes, seconds, remind you that you were here. you were loved. you made a difference. and you will be missed.

remember to find some time to play. play is very important in life, and this cannot be understated.

in play you find a release of endorphins, and a lowering of self-consciousness through a flexing of creativity. you find a safe place to find your Self, explore roles, situations, and delve into the inner recesses of imagination before unleashing all that energy out into the world. there's such a flourish of beauty which transcends fears and embarrassment with elation, joy, and ceaseless fun.

it's so integral to building confidence, strength, shaping a sense of wonderment, glee, and one of those beautiful activities which will completely set you free.

 sometimes people you just meet are like a single sentence; the words simply formed and curt. all the pertinent information in place, and the sentiment formed. 
 the great part about the evolving of that sentence into a paragraph, is that at times, it eventually turns into a 75-page essay. and introductions turn into momentary poetry. 
 there will always be time to rush our lives, but perhaps for today, let us practice the art of taking things at a slower pace. each word will will form on our lips, and only beauty with come out.
