le bout du monde

Tofino for Christmas.
I am on the edge of the world, surrounded by water, salty and fresh.
Somewhere
in the interrogations of time past
time future
time present,
I seem to have gotten lost.
While crossing the water on the ferry (perhaps the early morning darkness was a contributing factor), I fell into a funk of irrational heartbreak. 

But yesterday, at the end of a journey through a storm of biblical proportions, there was a gift from the gods: a magnificent sunset to remind me that the present is full of joy and love, despite minor irritations.
