It is absolutely amazing to see how life moves a long and evolves with time. Everyday when the sun sets I have the pleasure of simply reminiscing on waking up in the hours before. So far during this summer I have been working, taking an online course at JHU, getting to explore the city, and enjoying time with family. I will admit that at first I was a bit reluctant to have my nephew and niece visit our home in Tennessee. This was due to the fact that I had preconceived notions on how responsible I would have to be. And although it can be tiring, I have had enjoyed the moments with them so far. We all are sharing connected memories and experiences that will last forever. It is in the simplicity of those memories and experiences where an abundance of joy and happiness comes from. Life in all it is beauty and creation is such a joyful experience. I am thankful just to be breathing. My dogs keep on running, the birds keep on chirping, and people will keep on living. Everyday I will live consciously and make sure to maximize the beautiful breaths I have been granted here on earth, and in the universe.
