day 356: soft landing

If you flap your wings a little bit as you are reaching the ground you land softly. Just ask a bird.

It's those times when you try to zoom in, head first, that you slam hard and can possibly injure yourself.

A little flapping has been my mode lately. There is no real absence of stuff as I finish one big thing and start another. Even though, in my head, I know this is just how life goes, I am finding it hard to not feel like I am part of some cosmic experiment.

But with that said, I know myself. I know I like a pinch of madness. I use it as fuel.

Just a pinch? At least you know how to use it!
