Run forward into the past. Turn around and run back into the future. They were always there holding hands with the present creating a perfect moment. Resilient.
You hear what you can handle at the time and even though you look for more behind the furniture and in the garage, you won’t receive more until you are ready.
Don’t be limited in your response to friendship to conflict to love. It is all so vast and simple.
A dog barks in the distance, the clock ticks, a generator runs and once in awhile a car. And me? I have shifted. Have I shifted? I have changed. Have I changed?
