Stop. Pause. Sit alone on top of a busy rooftop bar.
I’ve been here a dozen times and not once have I ever noticed how the lights shine and shimmer around me. I’ve never noticed the couple by the side table enjoying a conversation over German beer, a giant pretzel and a beautiful meal. Ive never noticed the beat of the music in the background, but I do see everyone who moves along with it. I’ve never noticed all the quiet souls who blend in seeking a temporary block from life, a way to fast forward in time to a place we dream, a way to forget what we have lost, a way to calm our heavy beating hearts.
I’ve never noticed, until the day that I am one myself.
Stay strong my friends. Love, Jason.
