shift

This will become a blog. Even yet.

Just you wait.

You’ll see.

I’ve taken pictures around Hong Kong. And gone on hikes. And visited the sea.

I’ve been out with friends. And stayed in with friends. And worked my ass off here at home.

I’ve learned a lot. I’ve procrastinated a lot. I’ve dreamed a lot. I’ve worried a lot.

I’ve wished I had internet a lot. (I don’t have internet in my apartment. Hence, the only time I have to blog is when I’m in my office—when I should be working.)

I’ve hoped a lot and changed a lot. (Just when I think I’ve got things figured out, unexpected additional information throws me into a tizzy of reflection.) Can anyone ever truly know anything? Sometimes I think not.

But I believe yes.

I believe in love. Oddly.

(Love is . . .)

And so it is that paradigms shift. What once we thought true we later find false. Or changed. That’s all life is—one big, constant change.

And so we shift.

    Okay, so, truly, I think this is my favorite post out of all your posts I have read. I have been feeling this particular collection of words for the last four years; you have captured the honesty of life perfectly…

    • Wow, so I honestly had to look back to see what I’d written in this post, and I have to admit, I like it, too. It didn’t say much, but what it did say was very true to what I was going through at the time — and what we all go through all the time…

      Thanks for reading, Vance, and pointing this out to me. Maybe I should do a repost. I think my dad was the only one reading my blog when I wrote this… ;)

      • No, no, no–I think you said more than you give yourself credit for here. I think it says quite a lot, actually. And yes, yes, yes–definitely repost.

        I like your poetry, but I absolutely LOVE your prose. You have a way of thinking about things and approaching ideas that is extremely appealing and quite refreshing. As always, thank for putting a smile on my face and a lightbulb in my head…
