A few times in my life, I’ve had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise - and I can feel rather than think. And things seem so sharp. And the world seems so fresh. It’s as though it had all just come into existence. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything - they fade. I’ve lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present. And I realize that everything is exactly as it’s meant to be.
