I apologize for not having this out earlier for the song that was released July 26th. I had it under lyrics and thought that I had lost it and felt I couldn't recreate this again. Here it is and I hope you enjoy it.
With familiarity of everything you’ve once known and believed in, it makes it so easy, especially when you’re looking back on 20 years or more, to look at love or a situation you once felt comfortable in as your haven of the past that still sits with you. Of course, you have to rationalize the fact that your realm of the past can be miles away from the thoughts of those or a situation you once knew.
But when reading or listening to music (reflecting back), we can’t help but to summon upon those special moments that were part of our growth and or growing that contributed to our life; they are ours by all means. Though the past can clash with thoughts to our realm of today, we need to keep them close to our hearts and minds and cherish what they have given to us rounded into our personalities.
The feelings that are so deep and instilled in us have become ours, and no one else’s. Though they can never be taken away from us, they also can never be viewed the way we do-but we also have to realize that they are fully ours. We can connect at times with others on the same level to them, even in the same way. But what we feel inside is always ours.

This song comes from me looking down at the waterfront where I live in Portland, OR. I don't go down to it, I just look down toward it. I can see the bikes and people. Hear the noises coinciding with it from afar. Yet I hold my breath and clutch my chest to the what the remembrance of that spot brings to me. I'm still working on this emotional feeling.

This I felt so strongly within this past hour. I could feel the coldness of how unimportant she was. I do remember her as an important woman.

A Woman's Struggle With the Fear of Camping Alone Unreasonable Expectations written by Lori Jean Finnila You are lost now not knowing what you see so sure of your fear before you die As you lay here dying no one hears you crying you eventually die eventually others who know your pain cry In the beauty of nature you find your last home perhaps finally feeling the safest ever perhaps it was a wanderer perhaps it was your fear that took you to your last day here I will remember you I know your journey I know your path I am a woman too who couldn’t fit into what was expected of us We all know too much we can’t fit into this triangle of expectations that are unreasonably put upon us
