Life can be difficult for so many different reasons for so many different people. The degree to which we all are affected by varying circumstances differ. The thing that connects us all is our ability to be affected by the things in our lives. We might all experience the same external situation but every single person internalizes it differently and therefore has a completely different experience than anyone else, but yet still the same. What is making me think so deeply today about the human experience? I got a new cell phone. What the what, right? But it just proves my point. We have all gotten new cell phones but because of my life this is how it affects me. Without going into too much detail, my last cellphone was present and an integral part of many significant beginnings and ends that occurred in my life over the last 3 years. It is honestly hard to let go of it because I don't want to forget or get rid of any of the other memories tied to it. I'm sure that I won't but I'm afraid that I will. Such is life. Who know what will happen in the next three years? Life is beautiful. This is what I pondered this morning while drawing in my coffee shop. What are these guys thinking as they are walking by me?
