Ticking clocks, burning lights and the spinning fan all begin to fade. I lay awake, waiting for my eyes to drift and my mind to wander; but something holds me back. Thoughts are rumbling, the power in my vision is still so alive and the beat to my heart echoes in the room. My bed feels comforting but its gentle rock isn’t putting me to asleep, it’s giving me that moment in the movies, when the depth of this journey is all in one’s sight. She comes and he follows, he stays and she wanders; she whispers, he hollers. I hear them both, but I go blank and roll over, now isn’t the time for conversations with myself about you.

Then I realize, society’s time crutch isn’t the reality I’m “supposed” to live in. My reality is shaped by the feelings, intentions and beliefs I carry, not the numbers they construct. So, the spinning fan starts to come back and I get up to collect myself. I say hello to everyone in my head, I say goodbye to silence.

But it’s in that moment, it all fades again – because when you let go, everything becomes clear.

Be fearless and free -Ace

  2. What an amazing narrative of the play between the inner spaces and the noises that come in from out there. I often wonder how many people live within besides me, and what consciousness and intention can I bring to sort my way through. Your work is beautiful my friend.

  4. I love your philosophical somewhat existential musings, Ace. They really give me a lot to think about or express what I’ve been feeling lately. I especially like the second paragraph of this oneπŸ’™πŸ’ž
