  • Throughout the many instances in which I've delved into the depths of my mind, I've come to realize that my mental capacity is best utilized in lists. Hence, the following is a list of things that have made me feel alive, re-energized, and re-invigorated in this last chapter of life. The little things, often overlooked. Life's simple pleasures and most humbling experiences.

    Things that make me feel alive:

    Bike riding. freedom, wind in my hair, regrets left in the breeze behind me.
    The Earth. Grass. "Terra Ferma."
    The elements. A reminder that there exists external forces of nature that are much stronger than myself.
    Smiles from strangers, followed shortly by candid conversations.
    Long embraces.
    Parallels. I'll leave this to interpretation.
    Solitude. Being alone with my thoughts.
    Cool breezes.
    Horizon lines.
    Vast expanses.
    Nostalgia. Retrospect.

    Terra Ferma.
