The best engagement rings are the ones that hold significance. Japan-based Torafu Architects coated a ring in a thin layer of silver that rubs off over time to reveal an 18-karat, gold wedding band beneath. By wearing each ring, the time shared between two people can thus be physically seen, in order to remind them of how beautiful and strong long-lasting love can truly become as time passes.

Q: Why do you freak out every time you are alone and quiet?
A: I begin to question my motives and my foundation.
Q: what is it that you are questioning?
A: whether life or myself is worth anything.
Q: what makes you doubt its worth?
A: inability to make sense of the things i believe in most (God, right and wrong, progress, love, etc.)
Q: why do you doubt God?
A: because i feel no connection and see little evidence and the bible is full of flat out disgusting things about him.
Q: why do you doubt right and wrong?
A: bc i don’t see how they could exist apart from a creator.
Q: why do you doubt progress?
A: because i doubt my ability to determine which way is up.
Q: why do you doubt love?
A: because i see so few examples of the real deal.
Q: so what does all of this have to do with being alone and quiet?
A: i think i keep myself busy and invested to push past all of my anxieties and hope that my subconscious or my life experiences will sort them out for me.
Q: then what happens.
A: every time i am left alone with significant time to think, i realize how clueless i am. Recently, i have been aware of it even when i am busy. I can hear my inner voice having to remind me to stay focused on the job at hand in order to not meltdown when i am out with friends or at my jobs.
Q: and thats what you mean by progress as self medication?
A: yes.
Q: so what are you trying to do here, now?
A: i was hoping that tracing my steps backward and examining them closely would help me realize where i was going off track.
Q: is it working?
A: No.
Q: then what?
A: get busy again. Wait for my brain to catch up with my feet.
