Going back to university tomorrow. Being home has been swell…but it’s difficult at moments to see how much I have; recently I’ve been so acutely aware of the pain of the world. I wish I didn’t spend and consume as much as I do.
But Life doesn’t trail off into dissipated grey despair…I can taste the Hope when I actually open my mouth to receive it.
Before: blissfully unaware.
After: quietly confident.
