it wasn't as though he shoulda seen it coming (God knows he muddled through that one well enough) and it wasn't as though he thought it in the bag (the whole **** thing had always seemed ****** daunting) but these now recurring tasks and pop-up commitments were wavering him a great big pain the *** burdensome, machine like lacking, of any particular meaning
now there was that element of perseverance that he had read and lectured on (oh, how he had lectured on and on!) but he was not fully accustomed (having flown on a wing and a prayer) to the shattered routines and fallen plans obligatory iterations and post-mortem like sessions (seemed easier to stack em up, and shelve em in a somewhat manageable way)
but a rhythm evolved in simple momentum, and truth new plateaus, and revelations transformative unfoldings and cosmic events (which appeared as gifts from above) and they paved a path to growth
eyes opened, to the wonders of the world! a grounding in an earthly connection narratives reclaimed adjustments made faith, and fellowship first steps, compromise and gratitude filling the center stage (in kaleidoscope colour!) in this glorious and ever evolving play of life
was it worth it old friend? you bet your *** it was!
