Everybody is talking about letting go these days. I read about it everywhere. People seem to be obsessed with the notion of "letting go". I understand it completely, but the more I ponder the concept of letting go, the more I realize that in order to let go, you have to do the opposite. First … Continue reading Letting Go Is Really About Holding On
So I wrote a poem about time that I haven't published because I didn't really like it and I realized that I needed to develop the whole time subject better.
