Someone once told me that as we travel through life, we become more conservative. I have reflected upon the change in people that I once knew to their very core … and I wonder if the reason I see such apparent “radical conservatism” manifested in them is a result of their own time altered self perception on this earth. Exponentially, life is painful when we attach to anything that we need or desire to define us and ergo , our equilibrium. For me, life has been a series of … gut wrenching loss … over … and over … and over … and over … again. I find myself in this awareness and with every breath, I remember that nothing can be taken for granted . Take nothing for granted.
