The point is that my future just got more solid, more real, with all its ups and downs. Because I decided to chronicle it. Is that a good thing? For me, personally? I'm not sure. But it feels ... like it's going to be more meaningful simply because I weave it into some artifact for you to see after I am gone. Weave with my words ... After all, isn't that what we all long for, to be part of a story that has meaning?
For me certain weathers carry memories ... some are half-misted, some are just momentary eddies in my consciousness. But weather is a feeling sometimes. And so it was today, although I am not sure what it was I remembered or felt, only that it was special. Perhaps some day in high school when I was first in love, or had met an important friend. I can't remember. But I felt something special nonetheless. On a day where everything else felt non-special.
Watching a nature program as beautiful as BBC's Planet Earth may not be as real as being in nature itself. But it can be enough to feel the splendor in your soul. And therefore better food for it than another hour of social media.
