"Personal Matters - Story of the Day  this is the result of uneven personal growth her whole life & it mainly doesn’t bother her as long as she doesn’t try to explain it to people who think balance matters more than being happy however you are. More of this story here: http://tinyurl.com/qg8butu"

Stand still

The loss is not yours alone, she said & you will see it in their eyes when they do not think you are watching. How long does it take? I said & she put her hand on my chest & we did not speak.

Love matters

February 15, 2015

Someone once told me that people will do anything for love & I had a hard time believing that because there’s Love everywhere. In the sunlight & air & trees & rocks. In the way words attach themselves to the things we do & see. In the heartbeat (beat beat beat) of the world.

They told me that didn’t count. Love only counts if you get it from other people, they said.

I looked around & all I could see were people wanting love, but not wanting to give it because it might hurt. Or because someone might say Go away. Take your Love & go someplace else where people actually want it (which is silly, because that’s everywhere)

It still makes me wonder if the only reason people will do anything for Love is because they think there’s only a little bit

& not the whole world.

Sleeping Child

February 8, 2015
Someday, I hope you have a child fall asleep...

Someday, I hope you  have a child fall asleep on your chest & in that
moment, with the soft  whisper of their breath  against your skin, I hope
you’ll find the place  you’ve been looking for,  without any effort at all,
right there in your chest  where your child sleeps.

Invitation

It is not what you first think. There is no effort of will, no firm resolve in the face of this thing called living. There is only paying attention to the quiet each morning, while you hold your cup in the cool air & then that moment you choose to spread your love like a cloth upon the table & invite the whole day in again.
