I feel like I’ve been juggling rocks. What if I let them follow the path of least resistance and crash to the ground? Then I could really look at them. Some parts of them would look rough. Others would look plain. Some parts would look like the gems I never could see while I was struggling to keep them in the air.

Why not do this now? I can’t keep this up. Eventually everything will fall. Then things will be more grounded, following the natural force of gravity instead of the unnatural antics of me as a circus performer.
