    i saw you yesterday
    but i also saw you

    i used to see
    the boy
    that liked to spin empty water bottles
    balance quarters
    stacking things high
    salt and pepper and napkins
    defying the laws of gravity
    with a plastic fork and it would stay up
    “just so”
    the same way
    you were living your life

    i saw you yesterday
    but i also saw you

    as a father spinning his schedule to pick up his daughter
    balancing your money
    stacking your priorities
    no time for salt and pepper and napkins
    unless they are with your food
    at that moment
    no more plastic forks
    there is foundation
    nothing is “just so”
    because you are living your life right

    and when you hugged me hello
    it reconfirmed to me
    why I will always be your friend

    because i saw you yesterday
    but i also saw you

    It's fascinating how our integrity shows at such a young age...only to be recognized at a much later time by ourselves and our loved ones!!!

    great scribe

    a look inside

    this is a poignant reminder that we are who we are and that although the things we do change in many ways we are still doing the same things, but under different circumstances--Amun-Ra
