The Things We Can’t Have. A Ponder.

Beyond our reach, like a sunset, so beautiful. Running toward it, taking in its glory. Though we know it won’t last forever, we enjoy it, breathe it in, savor it and when it's gone, still smile.

Like the smell of brownies when on a diet. Is it better to be able to smell their deliciousness or keep the smell at bay? Is it better to have just a crumb, or none at all, knowing you can never have it all?

A walk in a park. Rejuvenating. A temporary joy. Unlikely to be able to live in such a place, yet a pleasure during visit. A fast flowing river, foaming waterfall, mist soaring the spirit. Ah. I leave with a peace and a certainty I will enjoy it again.

A beautiful soul, not fully available. One who causes a part of your soul to ache for what you know could be wonderful. Is it better to enjoy just a part of this beauty, painful as it also is? Euphoria and pain at once.

Why do some temporary joys include only joy, while others have a pain as well? This currently perplexes me. Again.

I feel it is better to enjoy some of the beauty than to never had any.
