Typewriter Series #730 by Tyler Knott Gregson
Twenty-one. A firm believer that life mirrors nature, and--if we look closely enough--all of the answers we need are right outside our windows.
A lover of Kappa, books, knowledge, music, lyrics, and life.
It’s strange how one picture can bring up so many emotions. I see so much in such a tiny frame—low resolution of course because it was five years ago. I see happiness that explodes off of the page and silliness that makes me laugh even now.
But I keep coming back to love. I see so much love in that picture that it warms my heart and makes it ache all at once.
As sad as this all is, that is still what I cling to—love above all else.
And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
Typewriter Series #722 by Tyler Knott Gregson
When I think about it I wonder how we still stand. I wonder how it is possible to get up in the morning and face a new day with bravery and hope. I wonder how we do not get wrapped up in this evil and let it crush us more each moment with its burden.
But then I see all of the love.
I see the love of friendships—strengthened in the face of incredible devastation. I see the love of family—not just the kind that is linked by blood, but the kind that is tied together with fate. I see the love of strangers for their world—those who continue to move forth and make the world a better place, as if in her honor.
There are moments where I find myself gasping for air, almost a physical manifestation of trying to come to terms with reality. But there are even more moments when I find myself astonished at how much love this world can have. These are the times when I know that she is still here, in all of us. She lives through love.
Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step.
