I’m floating above the clouds. Above Earth’s cotton blanket effortlessly scooting through the sky like it’s no big deal. Here at 10,000 feet it seems nothing can bother me. Trees and beautiful houses pepper the landscape as I coast away from the Connecticut backdrop that’s been so familiar my entire life.
As I wander, I write, I think, I feel, I experience, I remember and I forget. I capture, I record, I learn, I try to understand and help understand. Obstacles surround me just as they surround all of us. Holding us back, pushing us down and separating us to all different sides. But there is no sense in over-complicating this situation; over-analyzing it until the mere thought of its existence causes one to do nothing at all to avoid confronting these obstacles head on.
