Crossing the Line

24/02/2019

I have too much to lose, she said, if I cross that line. Like what? I said. She could not think of anything that day so she said she’d get back to me. Since then I’ve been thinking what I would lose if I cross my line & I haven’t come up with anything either. There’s always another line somewhere. – Crossing the Line – © 2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Open Arms

16/12/2018

If you are lucky someday, you’ll stand, surrounded by people you know, or in the dark of night, quietly by yourself (it does not matter where exactly) & Life will fill your whole self & it will spill out a little with each breath you take after that & you will give your promise to hold the world safe, for as long as it takes

& then, afterwards, you’ll go about your days, wondering what has changed & you won’t see for a long time how it happens in small moments.

When you smile at someone you do not know. When you speak up, though it is easier & quicker to just keep moving. When you stop & hold the hand of a friend who can no longer go on & you speak in a low voice that only she can hear & you say these words (or something like them): I would not want to be in a world without you in it.

& if you are lucky someday, maybe after one of these moments, you’ll understand why Life filled your whole self & all you could do was open your arms to hold the world close & remember how to Love. Open Arms  © 2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Place by the sea

place by the sea StoryPeople print by Brian Andreas

He kept a piece of algae behind his ear to remind him of his roots. A million years ago every place was a little place by the sea, he would say & my mind would go blank & I would swim through the day without a care in the world & it all seemed so familiar that I knew I would go back someday to my own little place by the sea. Place By The Sea © 2018 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.
