A Reminder For Your Wallet For When You’re 60

In a world that’s constantly changing every second is different from the last, leaving very little time to adjust in between transitions. The earth is constantly turning, the wind changes direction with every breath and time melts down into a puddle that we can view but not touch. Life is broken down into segments and…

Burnt Oranges and Banana Yellows

When I close my eyes and think about my future, I see a smattering of different scenes. I get a few pangs of feeling in my tummy- like a prediction of the way I will feel in the future but it hasn’t quite been given a name yet. In one of the scenes I see…
