“Three Things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth”- Buddha

It’s not difficult for days to go rolling by. The Earth rotates, there is day and night, and before you know January has become June and June has turned into December. The moments that add up to all of this feels like it is slipping away, either into the patterns of the past or the […]
