Embrace the dirty air

There is something to be said about ciry living that just can’t be explained with words. There is a feeling that you feel, deep inside. Sometimes it’s an immediate hate, letting you know early on that this is not the lifestyle for you.

The rest of us step outside and take a deep breath of dirty air. We embrace the chaos of too many people around us. The long lines at our coffee shops don’t bother us, we just know to plan for them.

The feeling comes with knowing there is always something to do. Middle of the day on a tuesday? Museums, parks, clubs, gyms, classes, you name it. It is all available if you look. It may require a bus or three, maybe if you are lucky, a city train or trolly.

Some people need hammocks, trees and open spaces all the time.

Others need chaos.

The Lost and Found

At the end of the day we all still seem to have the same goal.

To live a happy life, surrounded by other living beings that love us, and the ability to relax.

Sure we all have our paths to get there, and what we expect along the way, but the end goal is where we all meet up again. Right?

Choice

I never wanted to be your first choice

Being your first choice implies that there’s a second choice

for once I wanted someone to be so sure of me

that everything else

disappears

*Whitney Hanson Poetry*

Felt a little deeper

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit lonely And you’re never coming ’round

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit tired Of listening to the sound of my tears –

Bonnie Tyler, Total Eclpse of the Heart

Have you noticed that there are different lyrics that mean something different while you are going through different stages of your life? This song came out before I was born so I can clearly remember this playing at different times, from being at a skating rink with my parents all the way to coming to work today.

Today it hits me because this pandemic has strained all relationships.

Friends, neighbors, even families have been torn apart with this pandemic.

Some were because they got sick and spent time in the hospital, maybe seeing the worst of the worst of outcomes.

Some were because somehow we allowed politics to enter into this as if the color of your beliefs had something to do with the type of effect it had on you.

Some were because they are now too scared to be in public. This seemed to start on the fear of the germs, then moved to the safety of being in public and ending up near someone who took their OPINIONS seriously enough to start physical fights in the stores with no care of who else was around.

***I am positive that every one of you have opinions and beliefs when it comes to do with this pandemic, the process of how it has played out and the potential outcome from it. I respect your opinion/knowledge since I know that it is built around your personal surroundings, online research or schooling. However I do not care to use this platform to communicate with you about it. It does not matter how similar or polarizing it could be. Please respect that. ***

This pandemic has left everyone lonely at times. It has left everyone scarred and affected in ways we didn’t prepare for because we never knew that we would need to.

Today this song brought me to tears for a different reason then it ever has.

Reach out to those you haven’t spoken to recently guys. You don’t know what all they are going through.
