I've lived life! I've loved! I've also experienced loss of lives and loss of friendships. I could have broken, and became a pessimist, but instead I chose to bend, and make the best of this. At least I met that person, and experienced their perspective for a time of learning. I learned one thing. I'm not that different from the next person. We're all the same, when we begin to tell our story, because everyone has a story. Age disappears, experiences disappear, and all that's left is the listener. I like that the only person reading my story is me, but others may see it their way, in their eyes, on their time.
