"Journey" (edited sample) from thoughts by Atsumi
Life comes full circle.
I always stayed true to my heart and morals
making Believers out of Those who once stopped
believing in me.
Whilst on a run on a difficult day of difficult decision making,
I heard a rhythm from my feet, an arpeggio from my mind, a melody from my heart.
From that day forth, a new life began.
On 3-11-11 in Japan, a magnitude 9.0
earthquake and tsunami
brought devastation to my Family's birthplace
I was in Japan that day, an experience that will
forever haunt me. I was able to escape
but had to make the choice whether or not to return...
I learned to not let fear live my life.
Love is always more important.
The missing piece. The other half.
The one who fills the space in-between.
Connecting the space I did not know existed.
In memory of Adelyn Big Darling Foreman
Inspired by the love shared between the Big Darling and Little Darling.
To sacrifice your own well being to make someone else feel better.
To show Love even when it hurts or is uncomfortable.
To intentionally and mindfully create happiness.
To guide the transition from the last breath.
To feel completely heartbroken when
you have to say Goodbye.
This. Is. Unspoken.
