What is life?

What is life if not the constant consciousness of details, emotions, feelings, that go through us constantly? What Is life if not that first sip of coffee in the morning, the smell of your father’s cologne from when you were a child, the graze of that special someone’s fingertips on your back, the way the wind moves your hair when the window is open and the sun is shining? What is life if not the wagging tail of a dog when you get home, the hugs you get in a surprise birthday party, the pain you feel when someone dies? What is life if not the music coming from a guitar, the smiles around a fire, the sound of the waves crashing at your feet?  What Is life if not a concoction of goods and bads, of ups and downs, of dreams, fears, laughs, friends, family…of love.
