Song that Helped Inspire This Post:
There's something cautious in the wind. The way it pushes against the acceleration of my speed. As if it's saying, slow down...enjoy this. This moment is all you have. So I roll the windows down. I find a song. And I escape further and further away from you. Or is it further towards you… Either way, I drive on and seek the holiness of the sun. I chase the trails of disappearing rainbows around every corner. And I am reminded that nothing beautiful lasts forever. So in every attempt to fight against this, I pull off the side of the road. I sit on the top of my car. I get my feet dirty; my hair messy. I tilt my head towards the sky, and surrender to the raindrops that smoothly pour onto my dry, bare skin. Kissing it with goosebumps…cleansing my soul. And in this moment, although fleeting. Although beautiful. I find myself destroyed. I find myself whole.
