Sometimes after work I drive down to the beach, right up to the water and sit there to watch the sun set. Not only because it’s beautiful but because it keeps me sane. That no matter what happens in life the sun will always vanish away, sinking into the ocean and leave us in completely lightlessness. It is only then when you hear nothing but the sound of the waves crashing against each other that you start to wonder about these moments. The constant day to day routine we have and what we do to break out to them so that we continually have a firm grasp of reality and not lose track of the life that quickly disappears before our eyes when we don’t pay close enough attention. Because that’s what I’m afraid of. So here I sit in this moment getting lost in the shimmer of light glistening atop the water, waiting for a place in time where I can no longer be afraid.
