The past is remembered. Live in the moment. The future is in you.

Fresco painting of God and Adam nearly touching each other, The Creation of Adam, by Michelangelo. From the creation narrative of the biblical Book of Genesis, God breathes life into the first man, Adam. (Even though they barely touched each other, it feeds off a spark and connection. Few months ago, I saw this painting live in Sistine Chapel. Amazing experience walking-in as I witnessed history.)
Human interactions involving different relationships, like father to son, player to coach, girlfriend to boyfriend, brother to sister, friend to friend, and so on.
A single man seeking woman to mainly "connect." (Yuh, that is me.)
Connecting with each other builds a stronger relationship.
Not necessarily. For example, my Dad and I have a "tough-love" relationship. (We have our disagreements and arguments. Instead, our bonding together is watching Netflix, shooting at the gun range, and playing Xbox One video game, "Gears of War 4.")
Parents forced kid to play a sport. (Be a part of something. I assume they believe it is for his own good.) Yesterday, I witnessed one. He did not want to do anything. (His body language showed it all.)
He is a quiet kid with a low-pitch voice.
I patiently told him, "When I was about your age, I was forced to take piano lessons. I did not like it. To this day, I barely remember what I have learned."
I asked him, "What do you like to do?"
He slowly walked away.
In my heart, this kid needs guidance. Obviously, it takes time to build a relationship. (Importantly, I will see him again. This is not the last.)
I can say what I want. Then again, in every relationship, it depends if the person wants to connect back with me.
(First and foremost, it has to be mutual. Try to slowly connect. If it does not work out, respect it. Do not force the issue. Give space.)
