To live every day as if it had been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to.
We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill, going more or less in one direction until we splash into something that forces us to find a new course.
