Suspended By Time...

When I was younger, there weren't any adults sitting me down and helping to show me much of anything new. At that time in life, adults dealt with adults and kids stayed playing with kids, there was no real deviation from this.


There was always a part of me that was better than most of the other kids though, I mean I just thought differently and I wasn't on a "kid playing field" per se. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm still a kid and probably belong at the kid's table now more so than ever but back then I was so advanced and ready to take over the world. In lay-persons terms, "I fancy myself more as the Brain than I see myself as Pink". Let that comparison sink in, IF you know, you know, and if you don't, now you do.


I so often speak about time and how quickly it's moving past us daily. In the blink of an eye, yesterday was fifteen years ago and so on and so forth.


We do not need to keep our eyes affixed to the clock and its movements as much as we need to keep an eye out on the timeframes in which we find ourselves. The old adage, "There's no greater time than the present" holds so true today.


In a few short weeks, we're set to embrace society's "New Normal"; we'll be told that all systems are a go and things are fine.... Until...


Do not fall for the trap, do not hold your collective breaths and fail to live in the present. My brother hit me, today with the "Are you not sheltering in place..."


"Nah fam, my shelter is this place and the squad I see and interact with (less dude in the last post) are all family." During this wild time, you learn who's there and who isn't and that in turn leads to another story for another day.


As of now though, my time is up...
