Aquarius, INFP - expect emotional reviews where I probably get too personal or too open. It happens.
“I will be true to you. Whatever comes.”
Scenes of an existence, singular, and yet far beyond that of a single life. Life passing by in distinctly fractured moments; precious, sharp, fragile, like glass, broken into non-linearity.
Existence compiled into minutes - the universe and its creation, humanity’s germination, the will and consequence of our actions, and in all these predicaments the way of grace, kindness, compassion, a river in constant rift and conflict with the way of nature: harsh,…
The contemplation between life and death is one I’ve always questioned myself; one I’ve personally considered, many times. I’ve always seen it as an easy escape, a quick solution to all my problems; problems I’d only really have if I remained alive (which I have and will try to).
