I remember having a dream last night that was particularly inspiring. I was opening up a time capsule that had been encased in caramelized popcorn. I was almost worried at what I’d find, given the life I lived.

I began breaking pieces of the popcorn off, in order to get to the center.. I broke piece after piece, and when I whittled it down enough, I broke off that final piece to find only popcorn. In that moment, I had been given a gift… the now. The time capsule was not about seeing my past, but seeing the beautiful present.
