Upstream

The intriguing - albeit terrifying - thing about life is just when you think you have it all figured out, something happens that reveals to you that you are not quite as all together as you might have believed yourself to be. A truly humbling experience - finding out just how little you actually know about everything....especially those things that you may have felt you knew best of all. No, that is not correct. Finding out how little you know about yourself and how little resemblance you might bear to the person you have believed yourself to be is the most humbling and terrifying thing of all.

Once doubt creeps in and takes up residence inside of your head, you are confronted with the realization that what you believed to be true may be inaccurate. Let the fun commence. For if you are not who you believed yourself to be and your day-to-day is not what you thought it was, then who you are and what you are doing in your life and with it are fair questions to ask.

And while you are being self-reflective, and if you are feeling especially brave, then ask this one: Is a dream a lie if it don't come true or is it something worse?

And just for sh*ts and giggles, try your hand at swimming in concrete.....

.....where breathing shall not come easy whether by nose or by mouth.
