Thoughts from the West

Everything is going to be ok.

I can feel the architecture world moaning toward me. Begging. Pleading with me to not turn my back on it.

Yet I feel myself turning ever so slightly.

jfk.

jfk.

Let go of what has passed.
Let go of what may come.
Let go of what is happening now.
Don’t try to figure anything out.
Don’t try to make anything happen.
Relax, right now, and rest.

There’s something very powerful about emotional energy. I find my feelings and thoughts are guarded and guided by the instincts of those around me. 

I change. Not consciously, just intuitively, and not even purposefully. 

I notice it especially when I watch a movie or film that I’ve seen multiple times in a new place. It’s almost as though the energy and vibe of my surroundings makes me see it with new eyes - with New Eyes. A new perspective, a new set of feelings, and a new understanding of something that was once foreign. 

It’s strange, but also enlightening.
