"We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other." - Lewis Thomas

What life would be....

Even though we are just silhouettes,

Shadows of what we once were,

We shared our scars, our memories,

Our triumphs, our failures, our sorrows

And our joys.

We connected the dots,

Created a sail boat,

Plotted a course and went for the horizon.

I sit here now, on the shore of the unconscious

Sand under each nail

Driving into the sign of this new home,

Dreaming about the moments we shared

And the plans we had for each other.

It was your eyes

Elegant and brave like the rising sea,

It was your smile warming as the sun

Your patience that made the sand and the shore

And your love that sparked the heart of man.

It is here

in my lonely solitude

That I wonder what life would be.

"It hurts more to be creating happiness than it does to watch it from the side lines." - Authors note 48
