there is a time and there was a time and yet today, today is the time. i sit and reach out and there it is – my life, my bliss, my unwavering fidelity, my chapters unwritten and those from long ago, dusty with lessons and aches and adventure. i am with each moment, floating above and lying within, tracing the steps to us as you lead the way, there i am with wind in my hair and a tear in my eye. they call the words fluid, i just close my eyes and let them fall onto the page and you see how exactly life beckons me. you see that i am not what you originally expected me to be and everything you love so fully all at the same time. you see i am perfect if not in everything but merely in how we fit together. i see that you are surrounding me in blue and that when it rains you are on my skin, and yet at the same moment, i am freer than i have ever been. that music around us, that flow, that way i let you into me and you let me into you and forever and so forth, you told me you loved me and that you always will. and as i close my eyes, it is true. i am purified by love.
Love cures people—both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. ~Karl Menninger
