The third most important thing I may ever write: Perspective is flawed by one thing – our lives

Author’s note:  This is flawed.  I haven’t closed each thread, I don’t even know that I know how to yet.  I know that this was something I’ve been writing for about two years now that exist in drafts in any number of OneNotes.  Tonight was the night it needed to post.
