Three red lights in a row, paced in the distance. One after the other, making the horizon seem too distant as I drive along this road, feeling dissonance between where I'm at and where I need to go. This is something I've always struggled with. Feeling the pent-up energy surge as my body surges forward... Continue Reading →

Dear Dragonfly
