I know that rationally, this makes no sense. Yet it is my truth, this simultaneous existence in many worlds, across many planes of time. I seek to appreciate the present, to experience the now; and I really think I do. I am in love with my reality, with every moment of my life that I can fill with meaning. But it is so fleeting, this bridge between reminiscing and dreaming. And so often, I find myself dancing back and forth across that bridge, not sure which side I want to land on.
And so by some strange, twisted path of fate, I arrived here. My somewhere. And it is better than I ever could have imagined.
Of all the questions I was asked during my fellowship and since returning, those which procure the most emotion are in regards to relationships. The old ones, the new ones; those that thrived, and the few that crumbled.
