Life is where you stand.
It’s happening all around you.
It’s the wind that stirs up seemingly out of nowhere, and rushes by you, ruffling your hair and rumpling your clothes.
It kicks the sand up into your eyes and sends tears streaming down your face.
It spins you around until you’re years away from where you were standing only a moment ago.
And it leaves you breathless, confused, shaking, wanting..
And it doesn’t give a fuck if you’re ready or not.
