Truth now is a mix of the external and inner.
The fresh air tingles in your lungs and your head ends up being clear.
Periodically we get captured by an upward drifting experience of concern, bitterness, an accessory or an image, and prior to we understand it, we are at the surface area once again believing, questioning, stressing, being rocked by the waves of accessory.

The flowers quietly console you with their best peace and consistency.
