LIFE DIDN’T I OR MAYBE I HAD SOME OTHER DREAMS…
Stop. Look out your window. SEE the world, it’s still there.
Water dripping off a leaf. Birds sitting on a fence. Sunshine.
Life is in the little moments. A smile, a laugh, even in tears.
All of the little things that happen on the way to our next stop.
Life is lived in the space in between.
