it's wonderful, and I want you to realize it.

I can't sleep.  Why why why am I sleepy in the day time and awake when I'm supposed to be going to bed?  Was it the iced green tea I promptly downed circa 8pm?  Was it the cool fall breeze that snapped my senses into full throttle gear as I walked home?  Who knows.

This is one of my favorite things.  And this.

Not gonna lie, I think this all the time.  Even as I was walking home tonight, all I could see was the beauty of the night, the moon, the stars, the shadows of life scurrying through the cold to their warm beds.  Does any one else ever feel that they want to shout things to the world at the top of their lungs and just feel their insides smiling?  And are just happy to "be"?  And are just amazed that they are a part of this huge ginormus world?  Of which we are part of this even more ginormus galaxy?  Yeah.  Simple things like that blow my mind far too often.

I suppose it is life that blows my mind.  How certain people come and go, in and out and sometimes even back again into our lives.  Over and over again.  And how some of those people will be there forever, watching you age, and grow, and learn, and fail, and succeed, and live.  Over and over again.

I think sometimes about the people who have came and left.  What did I learn from them?  Did I learn anything from all of those comers and goers?  I hope so.  I think so.

And all while this coming and going and staying happens, the world stays the same.  The seasons, the days, the months, the holidays, one after another, over and over again.  And it really does go by quicker as you grow older.  And it continues to blow my mind.

I don't know what I'm getting at.  But possibly, maybe, you know what I mean.  I know what I mean.  And it's wonderful, and I want you to realize it.

We are all a part of this bigger than us thing and it's incredible and humbling and beautiful.
