There are periods throughout the year where my body begs for activity and there are moments when it begs for stillness.

Right now I’m somewhere in between.

Rapid Rebirth pt. 2

“Matt, Matt, wake up. I think something’s happening,” I whispered as I hunched my nude body over the side of our bed. I was dropping in and out of reality, and riding this new awareness of sensation.
