An essay on surrender, self-preservation, and some lessons lockdown taught me on impermanence.

"Viruses mutate. Restrictions lift. Moments drip through fingers like glorified pearlescent goo. Love, plans, and states of being can only ever be held like they are now. I admit that I’m an anxious lover, but I no longer want to wear it like protective fur over my collarbones. I don’t want my life to be determined by the meaning I give to my traumas, the false permanence I give my identity. There's a soothing safety in the quality of holding something, anything of this world, just as close as keeping it far away, and looking at it like it’s brand new, and about to slip away."
