The cardboard has ridges, wrinkles, stains, and rips along the edges. It reminds me of my face and body, how quickly they have succumbed to the elements, to time. But my spirit burns brightly. The flame is stronger than it’s ever been. That is a huge compensation. Maybe even an advantage. That last statement was said with my tongue in my cheek. It is more than mere compensation: it is a wonderful advantage. And why should I say my body succumbed? I am excited, creative ~ tota
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.
