One day, when I was overly worrying about something and not sure if events would be favorable, my father offered these words.

Clash of Opposites

Perhaps it has always been this way? A world torn apart by conflicting agendas but I was too distracted by work, family and individual goals to notice. At sunset, now that I have a bit more time I see the corruption, greed, hunger and corresponding beauty and love a little more clearly. A clash of […]
