clear blue sky
a heavy mind
misses the clouds

Deep in thought, caught in the thrall of questions, answers, anxiety, and a million little details. The birds are singing, the sun shining, and a brilliant shade of blue hangs overhead. Yet, the endless circle of things to come and things undone makes the present something missed rather than embraced. Is it flawed design or perhaps something to be realized before it’s too late?
