Tishbite (2)

“I always prayed for this: when the thoughts do land. It’s positive reinforcement, this sense of movement. The space enjoyed. It gives me a new sense of progress. To this new life my capacity to improve. Yes, I will stay focused, when the thoughts do land. The space enjoyed, because the wheel turns round.” “Round”
