Sleeping Awake

I keep avoiding this subject. Its not out of fear or because I dont have anything to say about it though… its simply because the subject seems to become more complex with each passing day. Its so hard to keep from breaking. Everyone is lurching with the boat. From left to right. Hard left then…
