No hurt survives for long without our help, she said & then she kissed me & sent me out to play again for the rest of my life.

When I die, she said, I’m coming back as a tree with deep roots & I’ll wave my leaves at the children every morning on their way to school & whisper tree songs at night in their dreams. Trees with deep roots know about the things children need.

I always wanted to invent something that would move around & make funny noises & would change the world as we know it & I forgot all about that until we had kids & now I see I came pretty close….

Personal Matters

"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"

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.
