Let us welcome changing times.

This is an era of new,

A new day, a new life, a new sun, an old moon soon to be new – that is now new.

Sometimes change can be overwhelming, and new can seem completely absurd.

How dare everything just change so suddenly? How could time not send a letter and say, “hello friend, I’m sorry to say,” or, “I’m happy to inform you but as of this very moment nothing will ever be the same?”

As if I was not in control all along and I felt some form of comfort and trust, but then time proved to me the folly I found on this one man scout.

Let me welcome you to a moment of solace, a moment where we gather our thoughts and choose a steadfast direction and love life as though it had never been loved.

For now we will stop moments of doubt and shift our thoughts from limitations, and welcome changing times.
