A flood of recent facebook messages after updating my Relationship Status prompted some nostalgia, followed by a bit of introspection. While lost in thought on the bus home, I realized I have allowed the whirlwind of the last two years to distract me from the many simple pleasures of life, including writing here.
I took a deep breath last night and stepped into the eye of the whirlwind. As the calm surrounded me, some clarity returned.
Whirlwind whips tick tock
Storm rages as time passes
The eye calm within
Today is a new day. Though the whirlwind still surrounds us all, I have a new eye focused on the present.
