As the days phase one into the other like a fine gradient, I find there are fragile moments where I am perfectly aware of my place in the world. The superficialities of life seem no more important than an obsolete technology destined for the forgotten corner of a forgotten warehouse in a forgotten district of a forgotten ghost city. I sit and I am simply appreciative of the gifts that cannot be made by man. Then, as quickly as it comes, it is gone, and I am once again lost in the gradient.
I am learning that the finite things in life are the most important because they are just that, finite. It is my wish, for myself and for those of you that are reading this, that we become more aware of these moments and surrender to them. Enjoy a conversation with a loved one for just a few words more, keep your feet in the water a little while longer, savor the last sip of your drink, do not turn around until the sun has completely set, and revel in the moment, for they are gone much too quickly.
If we have never met, if we see each other every day, if we are friends, if we are enemies, if we rarely talk, if we talk all the time, for better or for worse, every moment of every day...I am grateful for every one of you, whether I get the chance to say it or not, it will always be so! Cheers to all of you.
