I felt it all, all at once - the way that time can slow to a near standstill simply by existing inside it. By not pushing through it, or past it - by not wishing it away, nor trying to capture it. it was a lesson I needed to learn over and over again: to stop and simply be. To recognize these comments and enter them - with reverence and an unprotected heart - as if walking into a cathedral.
