Ever a reminder that we are the water itself, and not the bubbles caused by the friction.
It is an extended loss, a wealth of the unknown, and often the inability to find closure or completion to everyday tasks.
Conflict in all its forms has been in my thoughts these last few months. Brought forth not only from the ravages of a world out of tilt, but also by the inside ones that hide amongst everyday actions and thoughts.

The Curious Commodity of Common Sense You may not know how you know, and that’s the problem.
