J.Tran, 11th - Oakland, CA
Little moments count the most.
Just like how subtle changes reveal an appealing afterthought;
As the rain subdued, washes away the weight from your shoulders, the earth exudes warmth tones that fill up the room like calloused brush strokes on a canvas.
Sunsets of all hues begin to illuminate the sky, just like fireworks do.
We create these memories as we live in the present;
Not ever wanting it to end.
Places where thoughts and memories intertwine.
Smells where the nostalgia comes rushing back.
Time that we can’t get back.
A small gesture of kindness can go a long way, one that will never be forgotten amongst the sea of stormy weather.
It feels good to know, there will always be the little things; sunsets, mundane tasks like washing the dishes, laughing with family and friends, and even the turbulent weather that follows.
The little things, are just important as the big and monumental, they reminds us to rest, to take care of ourselves, letting the sun glisten your skin as the sounds of nature bring solace and comfort.
It also reminds us that good times will come again, especially when in feelings of doubt and peril. The smallest of things like crossing a task off of your to-do list, may be bigger than you’ll ever know.
