I remember those times and that freedom.

Is it as easy as a heartbeat, or do we aim too far and forget the little things that bring us “there” ?

Is it really freedom or should we first achieve freedom of mind?

We all remember the easy ways, we imagine we are there, but are we really present now, here, in this moment that is just passing by ?

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth
never mind
you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth
until they’ve faded
but trust me
in twenty years you’ll look back at photos of yourself
you’ll recall in a way you can’t grasp now
how much possibilty lay before you and how fabulous
you really looked
you are not as fat as you imagined

don’t worry about the future
or worry and know that worrying is about as effective as
trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum
the real troubles in your life
are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind
the kind that blind sides you at 4pm on some idle tuesday
