In my dream, the angel shrugged & said, If we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination & then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand. Imagining World © 2014 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

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. Deep Roots  © 2014 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

There has never been a day when I have not been proud of you, I said to my daughter, though some days I’m louder about other stuff so it’s easy to miss that. Quiet Pride © 2014 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Whole World

 whole world StoryPeople print by Brian Andreas

Mums come in all shapes & sizes, but they’re pretty easy to recognize because they’re the ones who teach you stuff all the time about how to be in the world & sometimes that sounds a lot like: chew with your mouth closed, sit still. stand up straight, be polite, Look them in the eye. & sometimes it seems like that sort of thing doesn’t add up to a whole lot. Until the day you feel the soft ache of love in your heart that makes you take care with a friend who hurts or when you look in a stranger’s tired eyes & you stop & smile. Or when you listen to the ABC song for the thousandth time & you laugh & say ‘again’ & suddenly you understand that is the real thing mums do & it adds up to the whole world. – Whole World  © 2014 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Voices

Stop listening to the voices
that tell you not to trust
your own heart to be alive.
They are not on your side.
(Unlike this voice here.)
