I'm happy, and ready for whatever comes my way. Happy, is relative though I suppose. Sometimes you're really happy, and sometimes you're medium and sometimes you were happy a second ago and then suddenly your mood drops. Haha, way to bring that back to reality.
What I'm getting at is how I am watching how everything comes and goes in seasons. And I'm feeling like now is a good season. Good things and tough things mix together to make you wiser and grateful for the things you have and the places you've made it out of. I'm guilty of days where I've woken up and already wished it was time to get back into bed. I wish I didn't sound like a survivor to be honest. I mean, I would like to survive, but to sparkle would be nice. Then again, maybe my eyes are not opening wide enough, watching closely enough when my reflection is brightly bouncing on car window panes and store fronts as I'm carrying by.
There's so much light here, in New York.
So funny how often we care about how we appear in front of others, and that's all we think about. But when you take a closer look at how others are appearing in front of you, sometimes you are impressed.

The timeline, more the place I'm in.
Where not everything comes to a stop, but to a detour. A detour with new priorities and new realizations.
Always funny when there's a shift.
But it's good to be back on track today.
It's good to breathe clearly.
Feeling oddly(?) alive.
---And it is never too late for that.

"One word that struck a chord is “dream.” A Latin American writer has said that people have two eyes: one of flesh and another of glass. With the eye of flesh, we see what is before us and with the eye of glass, we see what we dream of. It’s nice, no? In the objectivity of life, the capacity of dreaming has to enter in. A young person who is not capable of dreaming is cloistered in himself, he’s closed in on himself. Sure, a person sometimes dreams of things that are never going to happen. But dream them. Desire them. Seek the horizon. Open yourselves to great things.
I’m not sure if in Cuba they use this word, but in Argentina, we say, Don’t be wimpy. Open yourselves and dream. Dream that the world with you can be different. Dream that if you give the best of yourself, you are going to help this world be different. Don’t forget. Dream. If you get carried away and dream too much and life cuts you off, don’t worry. Dream and share your dreams. Speak about the great things that you want, because inasmuch as your capacity to dream is greater, when life leaves you only half way, you will have gone farther. So, first dream."
