Sometimes, Being Lost Isn’t the Most Unpleasant Thing

Life is an odd, beautiful, treacherous, and exhilarating ride.  These moments of pivotal progress, moving forward along with this arrow of time, are like the pinnacle of a steel coaster at the instant between upward movement and downward movement.  A floating feeling overwhelms me.  There comes the simultaneous experience of joy, excitement, anxiety, and terror- all of which arise so very intensely that I cannot grasp what is real, at least right now.

And yet, I embrace it.  All of the most wondrous things in life are preceded by this experience, and it is perfect.
