My dear,

Unbeing dead isn’t being alive.

Just because you inhale and exhale, consume nutrients and vitamins, does not mean you are alive.

Taking every second life gives you into your own hands and working towards being happy for as many of those minutes as possible… that’s being alive.

Walking off the paved path to discover your own in the jungle… that’s being alive.

Having your heart beat at a dangerously fast pace because you are about to do something you never thought you could do… that’s being alive.

Experiencing good nature, good people, good food, and good conversations… that’s being alive.

Falsely yours,
Edward Estlin Cummings
