Home Before Any Place. [February 22nd, 2012]

Capsized. You wake with a start to viagra uit india find your face pressed against the generic discount levitra ceiling. The flotsam of your present life drifting aimlessly past you. Below: your kicking legs, unfulfilled promises tethered to you like an anchor, and the murky darkness beneath. Women and discounts on viagra children first, you mutter. The dedication of a generation bred for self-sacrifice and service to our parent’s hopes. Sooner or later, every man goes down with the ship. But still, we cling to the sinking crow’s nest and call to the horizon with our eyes.  Women and children first. The band plays on, and the sharks circle with disinterest.

For months now, you’ve watched the world tilt drunkenly around your axis.  A gradual skewing of all that you once thought was real.  Now, with the salty aftertaste of www.richcongress.com untruths smeared across the lips of a once-bad liar who turned out to be a quick study, you reassure your reflection: Of course, I know exactly what I’m doing.  You nod, so he nods.  And you both agree that you feel much better.

Ad naseum, we tell people what they want to hear, until we start to subscribe to http://tuvicb.com/generic-cheap-viagra the wiles of our own inventions. Until we forget which tomorrow we used to believe in. Until we climb out of bed having lost track of who we were when we climbed in. In one of your dreams, a younger-you bowls you over in the street.  “Have we met?” he asks, with eyes squinting.  “No,” you say over your shoulder, as you brush past him.  “I’m sure I would remember meeting someone so naive.“  Dumbfounded, he goes about his business of doing whatever it was that used to make you happy, while you just go to work.

The silhouette of cheapest prices for levitra an elegantly tamed savage.  The sermon of a backsliding snake-handler.  The routine of a well-run rat race. In a rush to the corner office, we merge lanes at break-relationship speed and careen against the walls of our respective mazes.  The sound of dreams screeching to a halt quickly enough to see sparks fly.  It’s not a landing all of us will walk away from. Not with heads held-high, anyway.  Twice a month, you remember why it’s all worth it. While every night in-between, you ask yourself exactly when it was that your happiness became worth so little?

But as you sink further, and your feet graze the www.brennholz-deutschland.de bottom, you realize: this is where the page must turn.

The way out is the way through.  As it was for your father, and as it likely will be for your son when he later asks the same questions.  There may not be an obvious why, but there will always be an important who. We do it for the women, and children, first. We do it for the ones we come home to. We do it because we owe them the best version of ourselves that we can offer.  The ships will sink.  The sharks will circle.  But in the arms of where can you buy viagra cheap our loved ones, there will always be a shoreline.  A home before any place.

    Great photos as always and they go well with what you wrote. It’s an art the way you portray the buy tramadol online canadian mall visual with the written. Something you said there hit home for me and I’m taking my inspiration from that today.

    “you ask yourself exactly when it was that your happiness became worth so little?”, “But as you sink further, and your feet graze the bottom, you realize: this is where the page must turn.”

    Keep on doing what you do sir Word Hard & Dress Well

    There’s a great harmony with the shots, location and message in this piece. I also love the slight formality of a DB waistcoat and http://www.smartersecurity.com/cialisbest-cialis one-button peak-lapel coat blended with the ruggedness of patch pockets and the fabric choice; it’s a nice juxtaposition.

    Meh.

    • i’m sorry. i wasn’t aware i was here to juggle outfits for your amusement. the internet is a big place. there are plenty of other sites you can visit if a fashion show is what you’re interested in. that’s absolutely not what we’re about here.

    Wonderful, W. The rat race is viagra canada generic ever running, and has been, since the 50′s in this country, up an ever steepening hill. As we struggle up it, the loose change falls out of our pockets and rolls down to those with the deepest and therefore heaviest ones. But if we have to run it, we must fight to keep that hill on the level, and doing so in something as cool as that is good in my book. DN.
