Growth can be a beautiful thing when you keep everything in the right perspective.
Life has a way of adding value to your worth. In the beginning, when you were just barely old enough to get out and experience life, you may feel like donating yourself to science fiction. But to the near endings of your personal journey that consists of ups and downs, feeling like a jet plane running in and out of bad weather, and feeling all the turbulences that it caused, you try to hold it steady, waiting on better days. And if you finally made it through, you come out feeling priceless!
I can not only see me going through the growth stages but also feel me going through them. In other words, from infant to child, to adolescent, and then to manhood. My mind was first into rock and roll, then jazz, then rhythm and blues, and now this spiritual thing called soul.
