I have drifted. How far I do not know. The shore has diminished and the silence evermore present as the currents of change incrementally alter my perspective. What I value is new as my needs for survival have changed. Once deemed essential, what was important is weighed in light of fresh challenges and broader realities. Insight has brought enlightenment. What was, still is, but is less essential than before. But without it, where would I be but lost at sea. Growth requires such calm calamities.
