people come and people go and that is just the way it is. i don’t know what else to say about it right now, but i should. i think about it all of the time. we arrive places and we leave only to arrive at another place. we are born and we die. we see the sun and we see the moon. some of us don’t see at all. there are complications and there are victories. there are feelings. many, many feelings. there is an idea of a promise. and when i listen to natalie merchant, i think of my mom. that’s all for now.
