Crossing the Line

February 24, 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

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 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.
