I’m not so good at taking my own advice, she said, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know what’s right. –  Knowing Right – © 2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.You can buy books, posters, cards, ornaments and more and sign up for a daily dose of whimsy like this by email at Story People.

 


Quick Getaway

People say jump in with both feet, she said. Personally I like to jump in with one foot, so I have the other available for a quick getaway. Quick Getaway © 2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Directions

January 6, 2019

I’m not that good with directions but if I were you, I’d grab big handfuls of sunlight & laughter & love because when you’re making a whole new world you want to be sure it has the important things first. –  Directions © 2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.You can buy books, posters, cards, ornaments and more and sign up for a daily dose of whimsy like this by email at Story People.


Action Plan

Rules for making the world: 1. Stand up & do the thing you see needs doing. 2. That’s it.

Open Arms

December 16, 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.
