Peeps the sun through fragrant balm.

The mind shouldn’t be allowed to play tricks on us.
It is, after all, our only interface with reality, processing every sensation in every moment to define our very existence.

“We are tomorrow’s past.”
-Mary Webb, Precious Bane, 1924
We can’t change what has happened in the past. We can learn from it, and grow from it, and ultimately go on from where we are now. We cannot predict the future – it is filled with infinite possibilities. The best we can do is to live, and love, the moment we’re in. Life is like Disneyland – if we are thinking about the next ride and how we’re getting there, we can’t enjoy the ride we’re on right here and now!
