I feel as though I am shedding over 20 years of skin and dust and dirt; 20 years of memories, ideas and dreams.

I feel as though my outer shell is shattering into a million pieces and peeling away.

I feel uprooted, uncertain, unstable; over-analysing, over-sensitive, over-complicating.

(I know I’m melodramatic, but I truly can’t help it.)


But, I find myself reminded by the alchemic philosophy, solve et coagula, that something must be dissipated before it can reform. I know that I must be broken down; undergo a period of clarity & purity, before being reformed or reborn as something whole and pure.

All I have to do, is wait and endure. Wait and endure.
