Realms of reality

on November 5, 2012

It’s as if I live in two completely different worlds – two realms of reality.

Both worlds are uniquely beautiful but with sharp edges, like rocky islands, impenetrable.

I wade, frolic , and sometimes nearly drown, in the unpredictable sea between the two worlds but I always make it to one shore or another.

A teenager and an old man – a father and son – two worlds.

Sometimes I dive deep into the ocean of my own world and find treasures buried in the sand.

Usually I just find two – one for Anthony and one for Ming.

Today I found a third in the form of a little island between the two realms.

It is just big enough to build a small hut, the water is fresh, the sun is warm and I can still see.

I can see in the dark – from realm to realm to realm.

    So beautiful written … you emptied your heart and soul in this post. So happy that you have found a place that you feel comfortable in – a place in between … I think you should give your island a name.
