i feel like i’ve seen everything, she said.
have you touched the sky?
have you felt the scales of a shark?
have you experienced the rush of near death when you jump off a cliff?
have you met people who know nothing about you?
no, she said. but i wish to experience them.
well, till then – we haven’t seen anything.
i’ve danced with death; i’ve fought in a war; i’ve seen despair met with hope
i’ve known illness and gratitude – but at the end of the day i know i’m lacking in the world. to believe that we learn everything here is to be foolish.
