Darjeeling, Bergamot and Walnuts


Carpe Diem

It was a burden almost too much to bear

But what is a holier experience
a more infinite blessing
than that of being alive
of being in the realm of the living
capable of action and influence
capable of walking a line
when it would seem all is pushing you from it
but you know it must be done
its a marathon to go the distance

finally crossing ...
no need to ask what is next
just to collapse in happiness
and thank those who walked with you
and gave a hand and urged you on
when all hope was lost

finally crossing the line

it was a burden too great to bear
were it not shared with friends.

  1. I'm in the middle of Ayn Rand "Atlas Shrugged". Reading this again, it seems like a summary of the book.
