events are happening a lot like they did last year.
there is an undercurrent of...
something hard to ignore.
something full of chaos.
but there's another that is full of dreams and hopes and
the chance to breathe again.
because i am breathing right now.
because we want to explore the world,
we want to take in all of God's grand creation.
but why not start here
we say we want to explore and adventure. we want to go.
but to other people in other towns in other places,
this is where they would choose to go.
and i am here.
and this is now.
and i am not getting any younger.
and my hometown is just as beautiful as your city.
i wish to explore it all.
not just other places.
(here's to setting hopes high
but appreciating your own backyard)
this being alive
