untitled enlightenment.

the other evening, justin & i were on a walk at betty virginia park,

i don't like being mortal.

there are so many things i want to do in my life: so many careers i want to pursue -
so many activities i want to be involved in - so many books i want to read.
and often the sensation creeps up on me that i just don't have enough time on earth to do it all.

our walk was a long, satisfying one, as was our talk.

we were more realistic in that moment.

we knew the best route was to pick one thing & put everything into it.

and i'm happy to say, that is exactly what i'm doing.
