32 years young, family man. Lover of words & food. Forever looking for the good in a world of grey.
When you start a new chapter, an adventure, the next significant stage of your life, you start to notice an awful lot. Not only about yourself, but your world in general. Recently I left my partner of 12 years. This was not a decision I made lightly, in fact it was more of a line in the sand, an end of an era, I had given all I had to give and the realisation of this descended upon me like summers rain.
So today is Sunday, the day of rest. It’s the day Mexico beat Germany, Switzerland drew with Brazil (still can’t believe that) and that fathers up and down the country are shown appreciation. Now, don’t get me wrong we don’t need Hallmark holidays to express our gratitude for someone, but its nice to buy into the idea.
I’m not sure if it’s been four days or four years since my last entry but one thing I do know is time seems un-measurable when I’m with my pitcher. So let me begin at the end of my last post to bring understanding to where I am now.
Tomorrow Is Now Today
Yesterday somebody gave me something. Something incredibly beautiful, personal, & special. This was the closest I had ever been to such a gift so here I am now returning the favour.
Every now & then life throws a curve ball at you. You plod on with acceptance and knowledge that not changing the status quo is the right thing to do. You see the thing with this mentality is that you loose your self. Your drive, ambition, even who you are. Its such a slow & gradual process you don’t even realise. The gas is barely feeding the light. The life of colour you once had has turned to grey.
