F333L! Dan Cox

I am looking into a mirror and I notice that the skin on my face is beginning to age.

But I feel proud of the aging skin on my face because it has lived and grown and each line on my forehead and beneath my eyes reminds me that I exist.

At least for now.

And there is an ocean that is blue and violet and made of shapes and pixels.

And I think about you.

And I want to hold your hand.
But there is nothing I can do because we do not know how to connect.
