Back then the potency of life had hit my young heart all at once. Art, love, her, music, energy, spirit all expressed, but never together until the potency of now engaged the whole. Now is the longest second of them all.
Sometimes I catch the now amidst my second chance on canvas, in wood and amongst some words, at other times it’s unheard. Unseen and intangible, like our own echo come back to me.
