Let the sun beat down on you. Let the rain seep into your shoes. Let the wind ruffle your hair. Let the mud stain your clothes. Let the heat burn your skin. Let the rocks cut into your flesh. Let the air chill you to the bone. Let the storm rage against you. Let the night break you down. Let the silence tear you apart. Let the tide knock you over. Let the universe take back control. Let go.
