My Mind In a Minute...

...Can't see dark, menacing clouds or feel cold, bone-shattering breeze, but I feel a storm coming!... this feeling... this ever-present, somewhat subconscious irritation, a dull foreboding, an intuition, a knowing...

...NEED time for pause... need to find the button that puts life on hold... the one that brings everything to a stand-still, kinda tableaux, while you walk around and examine the intricate details of what just happened and what is about to happen... need that button for pause...

...Hard learning, inconvenient truths... the kind that slap you squarely between your eyes with a force that knocks the wind right out of you... leave you sprawled on the ground... floored... Wh-? What just happened?

...You Live, You Learn, You Grow: that's my life's motto... the first thing to slip through my lips when stuff leave me crazily distressed, or strangely elated... Throw 'you laugh' and 'you love' somewhere in there, and you have my life story...

...why do bad things happen?... you LIVE, you LEARN, you GROW...

...'aha!'... a moment of epiphany...
