When you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence.

-it finally happened, woke up this morning thinking, what tragedy,travesty happened,or what troubled part of the world would be hurting today. I am a realist. I do not put my head in the sand when there is wrong being done to anyone. I am a hopeful peacekeeper, I am empathetic to others hurt. I am [...]

it’s my heart

..I'm constantly working on my heart, for most times I have found myself to be down or questioning,doubting, or just anxiety ridden or at unrest.. I usually find out that it is my heart that has something not ticking right in it. How? do I know it's my heart, and not my brain, or just [...]

short life

"friend's friend found out 2 months ago, that he had stage 4 cancer of the lungs. Yesterday was his memorial." just wow. really makes me want to tell everyone that I love them NOW, want to DO all the things I want to be remembered for, want to BE kinder to myself, to others, WANT [...]

no name

love when ignored will run and hide with a stiff upper lip and a heart grabbing to subside into hate. Morning comes to tell the doorman to let me in so we can together heal the mistresses leaking heart with a nice buffet of care. sometimes the butler over sleeps and the maid forgets to [...]

place

sometimes when I look back on a time, I question if that time and place has wondered where I have been so long. Did the trees not grow any taller, or maybe the stream stood still since then.. No clay banks fell into the sides leaving larger barriers for tadpoles to grow. Seems when you [...]

In my solitude

In my solitude times from my self induced busy life, I often times replay benchmark moments that really make me proud, I remember things that people have said to me along my journey that were positive or inspirational to my purpose. Always searching for that. I am closest to finding out what that is when [...]

To Ancient Evenings..

to ancient evenings and distant music... to lost moments, and future times... to hope of true love never being forgotten, and songs of sadness silenced from broken hearts.. to happy tunes, and smudged in landscapes. to horizons on oceans, and stars falling off into the sea.. to dreams of peace landing inside of you and [...]

the Smell of Swollen Particle Board

Even though the rain has gone and skies are blue again, there is an after that remains to be seen, a now that digs into the true grit of your work ethnic. The time that you will see who comes to your aid, the ones in your life that holds you up when your legs [...]

Persisting

- to produce something special as the wave is to the shore. a gentle kiss to be felt, and the slow ripple of sensation that lingers back out to sea. repetition is joyful only when the motion is softly spoken,and the echo of belonging is slowly laid to rest. where you lay is up to [...]

Soul

A difficult situation no matter what form it takes is designed to break down your own rigid emotional patterns that don't fall apart just because one morning you get up and say, "Ah, today I'm going to throw it all away"... Precisely at that moment when you come to grips with your own limitations and [...]

Joy

We refuse the few moments of pure joy from former cracks in the conversation of what has been deemed ours as sad verses of experiences. What we were born into-the molds, the cards we are dealt. The protection of those padded walls surely contain with a soft firm grip the true order we are born [...]

tin roof

the winds are thumping the tin roof so softly the kettle purrs back its soft refrain hiss of calm and all I can do is wonder if you are safe tonight safe in the arms of someone who held you as tight as I if those arms are not in place and if the calm [...]
