rushing to stay at twenty-two

Out in Brooklyn today, and realizing too many things need to be done, I wish I had a magic potion to freeze my age at 22, just so I could get a few bits and pieces strung together before I advance into the wistful, blissful, and apparently wiser years. Alas though, unpreparedness is really a magic, headstrong and open-eyed in so many ways, so perhaps I could do without that potion. As soon as I got into college, I wanted out and now I would like in and out– on the one hand, security of school and the innocence of that student card to play, on the other, the independence and unnecessary justification for actions taken and pursuits impassioned– but most of all, to release the drive to go seeking, much like a bloodhound on the tracks of something. Out in Brooklyn today, I came across the Little Pakistan neighborhood, and out in Brooklyn today the streets were lit with pretty, intriguing signs, languages, and a color inspired. 

Little Pakistan, Brooklyn: Outside a Masjid– I wanted to follow this more… one glimpse of people at prayer and I got so intrigued, again.

Flowers given to life in the sun, graffiti, and a little man to the bottom right.

  2. I feel you. I’m finding myself in the same situation, and this entry of yours couldn’t have said it any better. I’m 23 and the time passing into the transition of real life has never felt faster.
