Story #11: Cloudscape Paradox

Yesterday,  I was riding on a bus being transported through space and time.

I was jolted into another dimension. Looking at the clouds for six hours. I don’t remember the last time I had given myself permission to daydream.

The beauty of nature, the complexities of life began to overwhelm me with their presence.

Live for this moment. Not a second in the past, Not a second into the future. What is now is now yours. The unknown will always be there. The mysterious is what will guide you, Especially when everything makes no sense.

Pain does not go away. Mistakes are not forgiven. Nor forgotten. Heartache tears through you At every chance you give it.

The moment of now, just me and the clouds floating together with the wind, An escape into the present.
