A sense of belonging

Where is home? Is it a place? Is it another person? Where do we truly feel that we belong? Sometimes I think about the nights when I'm surrounded by people and yet I'm all alone. These people we call friends, are they really? Filling our days with intoxication and empty conversation. A community of lack of thought. I want to be inspired, I want an adventure, I want to experience life in raw form, and some of these things I've found on occasion. There are those who do inspire me and that makes me realize that these people who have the passion to inspire me, they are where I want to belong.

Music feeds my soul and takes me to a different plane of existence, the beautiful moments that we find in a song that take us to a different place and time never ceases to amaze me.

Look into the future

Recently it seems like those around me are all holding onto the past. They are having trouble focusing on the future and the possibilities in the future. Whether it's the men in their lives, the women in their lives, losing their job but not putting forth the effort to find something new and moping in self-pity. The state of our economy is not helping matters either. Yes it is depressing, but their are still positive things out there. In the words of Mahatma Ghandi, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Grab the reins, go out and do something! You can find a new job, you can find a great significant other, these things are out there and they're waiting for you to go out and find them! They will not come to you, realize this and do something about it.

Fading Seasons

My favorite season is slipping through our fingers as we speak. Fall is seeping into the air and invading our senses. Leaves drift to the ground preparing for a long winter's nap, the chill in the air has that hint of fall scent. Visions of brilliant colored trees flash through my mind, the crunch of leaves under feet, the taste of cider, jack-o-lanterns, and costume parties. Summer isn't quite gone and yet I miss it all ready...
