Navigating the distance

...between my expectations and what is.

...between (my perception of) the expectation of others and my current set of choices

...between the story I'm currently telling myself and the myriad others that I could choose.

...between me and this person. And this person. And that person.

...between me and my own heart.

When the distance goes from short to what feels like very far.

When it goes from comfortable to too close.

When it feels like loss.

When it feels like gain.

When it feels like work to be close or far.

And when you remember, it's all the same.
