Beyond my here and now; an eclipse.
The ‘twenties’ are … strange. The duality of striving to be alive to reality yet at the same time holding onto dreams is quite the challenge in many a twenty-something’s life. In fact, both child-eyed wonder and hard-nosed reality struggle to weigh each other down on opposite sides of the scale.
But as hard-nosed reality starts sinking in us, gravity weighs down our physical and starts the process of transforming us into white-wigged philosophers.
That’s why by thirty, life isn’t those gorgeous, hauntingly ethereal melodies. That’s when push comes to shove. How? “Push pride and shame aside and surrender to the simple will to live.”
It’s called life; heard of it buddy?
