Solid, Liquid and Gas

The last few months have been absolutely crazy. I've been busy. I've been sleep deprived. I have been stressed out of my mind. I have gone past my breaking point and had to keep moving because there was no other option. 

The other night, I was talking with Hatred! and Merr about the Christmas Carol. We were talking about the Ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Merr did something amazing. She equated them to Solids, Liquids, and Gas. 

The Past is solid. There is nothing that we can do to change it. It is what it is and it will continue to be what it is no matter what we do.

The Present is liquid. It's flowing constantly and moving from Present to past. It's always coming at us and it can change.

The Future is gas. It's the most volatile, changing and unattainable as holding a handful of air. 

Right now it really seems like the present is a liquid. Coming at me straight in the face and forcing its way down my throat. 

But, you know what, like A Christmas Carol, I have found a bit of a happy ending. I have learned that I can breathe water. I am much more amphibious than I had ever supposed. I wouldn't have known that if life hadn't forced my head underwater like Life Waterboarding. I have been keel hauled the last few months, but I can swim. Just so long as I don't keep thinking to myself that I can't breathe underwater, because that, is when I drown.
