** opting out

sometimes the universe throws you a ball
that knocks you down
and while you're down there
you think about stuff
all the stuff you need/don't need
all the stuff you think you need/want
all the stuff that's important/unimportant
all the people who were there/weren't there 

then you get right up, dust yourself down 
and start again
with a fresh perspective
that scar the universe left
the gentle reminder 
you never forget

we are going on an adventure today
far away
where there is no christmas day
and we will remember all those here/not here
we will carry them in our hearts

have a happy holiday
fill your soul and your belly
see you in 2016 with tales of our journey
