we are doing our best. our absolute best, aren't we?
there are those wide stretches of time in between where we don't see each other, find ourselves in conundrums, pickles, creative droughts, and struggles. those times where we find ourselves apart from our peers and supporters, we have to remember that we too have the skills the flourish beyond our own expectations.
the in-between times are also "real life" happening, but it's always a welcome occasion to meet in person and recalibrate. trust in yourself, put your best foot forward, and all of the outcomes will develop as they may.
there is a certain beauty in the at-times unknown; embrace it and see what happens.
