Throughout the course of one’s existence there are a range of experiences, from the birth of childlike innocence onward, which culminate to form the person who appears before you in the mirror. Life can be understood as an oscillation between periods of extremes – times of pleasure, times of conflict, times of sorrow, or times of apathy. The transition from one phase of life to another often arrives unexpectedly – moments that disrupt or divert your course, resulting in overwhelming joy or deep-seated misery. The memories of these experiences define how we perceive future experiences – it is how we interpret the messages sent to us through the cruelty of circumstance, the imperfections of society, and the severance of union with those we hold close that determine how we understand and engage life. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that we seek out the truth behind these messages – that regardless of the way the world tells us to perceive things we look beyond or underneath or around that so that true understanding can filter in. There is one truth – it is clouded by perception. So I urge you brothers, sisters, to not settle for a mediocre existence but rather, to remember.
