No slowing down

I always write when my thoughts get uncomfortable…

he depths of the world fascinates me. Whether I’m picking at someone’s brain for enlightenment or I’m binge watching the National Geographic Channel; I’m still on the same quest… To know more. 
I find the simplest (and at times the most complicated) discoveries tend to jog my memory of you. How even a documentary about ocean storms can make me think about you baffles me too. 

Nonetheless, it seems that this whirlwind that we put ourselves in is changing its current. Maybe it’s due to the season change… 

Do you remember when we first fell in? We were spinning around hot and bothered… cycling each other while petitioning for our individual wants and needs. Compromise is hard when you are grasping at one another’s wet bodies and falling hard. Some how we had to get the motion down right. Learn to relax and ride it together… And we were good for awhile. 

However, I’m not sure if it’s your stubbornness or my arrogance (or is that the other way around) that makes us insist on letting go of one another and spinning off on our own. 
… Thats not why we fell into the whirlwind to begin with.

Maybe if we could see where it ends, we would act more appropriately. Things would be final and set in stone… Making all the back and forth-ness mute.

However, that’s not how we should be thinking… and that’s not how whirlwinds work. Thanks to my love of historical facts and boring information; I know this with conviction.

Once you are in there, there is no swimming out. You just have to ride it down… diving deeper, spinning faster, cycling closer to me… You have to hold your breathe and ride. It sounds scary but, remember we decided to fall in! 

All the bumps and bruises are just part of the experience. Adding in a plot twist will shake up things. We are both awful swimmers, but it will only make us more dynamic… resilient even. Now, take a second look at the picture and imagine what we’ll be the further we go.
