Substance of a Greeting (2017)

Written 11/03/17

Goodbye. 

That’s how I feel I should greet people. 

We greet each other with an idea, that nothing we begin will last. 

It’s true, isn’t it? That we greet rather backward, a “hello” is a getting to know the real you. The real you doesn’t show until your gone... the goodbyes are the greetings we needed, but a hello is a start. 

To live a life of substance... don’t make the first meeting an epilogue before it became something real. 

Hello.
