If I could just meet a few people that love comic books, video games, hip hop, poetry and computers and make friends with them, my life would be complete!
In time we all come to realize our size in the grand scheme of things. We start off feeling so big and important and ironically as we grow larger and gain wisdom with age we start to feel very small. We learn how large the universe is and and we see our tiny place in it. We begin to grasp how much time there has been and our portion seems so subtle and meager. Our huge dreams become impossible, or we achieve them and they aren’t as great as we imagined them to be.
However we learn to love and appreciate our advantages and we begin to thank people for their efforts. A child knows only how to navigate through the world exposed to them. As adults we learn to shape the world and carve our path in it. The elderly answer all their worldly questions and truly learn to love what they have. Our grandparents are always so many steps ahead of us and our wonder that they don’t usually even try to open our eyes. They show us love and watch happily as we try to figure it all out, blinded by our innocence.
I’m enjoying my experience and I’m aware of my ignorance, but I’m only so far in and I still have a lot to learn. I must try to live life in seconds. It’s too audacious to think in days, months or years. For now my mantra will be timed by my beating heart, not by my calander.
