Let go. Drift into release.
Into acceptance. Trust things will be alright.

This affirmation, this sureness of breath, is more
than words, more than a passing of one thing
into another.

The manuscript of conversion is written a chapter at a time.

There are more intervals, more things still to arrive.
What exactly is planned next?

There is a journey ahead, without any plans,
with no certain destination,
where nothing is written.
