...7.23.17...





Sometimes our light goes out
 but it is blown into a flame by another human being.
 Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.
~Albert Schweitzer

...just BE. real...


'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 
'You become. It takes a long time.
 That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily,
 or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. 
Generally, by the time you are Real, 
most of your hair has been loved off,
 and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. 
But these things don't matter at all, 
because once you are Real you can't be ugly, 
except to people who don't understand.” 
― Margery Williams BiancoThe Velveteen Rabbit

but where do we find honesty, warmth and friendship?
what are real values, real goals, real love, a real life?
and most importantly, how can we rediscover our own true selves?

the simple wisdom of the classic children's story 
The Velveteen Rabbit can be the start of your
return to Real.
let this book show you the way.

[from the back cover of this book.]

i love this book.

...just BE. white whisper...








Often, I write all day long with white ink on white paper, 
late into the night, until it is all I can do to feel the letters 
curving to earth from the tip of the pen & then, I fall asleep.
Dreaming of running, or maybe driving in a car the color of water
& I wake the next day remembering nothing & I gather the stack of 
paper & a pen of black on the desk in front of me & the words begin to
dance over the page like long legged insects across a still lake
& the words in white whisper behind & underneath the new day. 
If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the 
sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can. 
& there is nothing more to it than that.
~Storypeople

sometimes.
you see more depth.
in black and white.
than in color.
the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can.
simply.
simple.

...just BE. kindred spirits...


there is a beautiful thing inside of you
that is thousands of years old.

too old to be captured in poems.
too old to be loved by everyone
but loved so very deeply
by a chosen few.

it is a beautiful thing.

...the time is NOW...






Who am I?
It's often been said that
we become the choices we make.
Our identity, in other words, is
in large measure developed 
through the way we behave and act--
especially toward other people.
Few of us can be saints but we
can certainly all be
seeker--determined explorers on the path of right
thought and right behavior.
It is on this path that we will find ourselves.

...just BE. randomness...


Trajectories aren't linear.
 Life's just a roller coaster.
 If you're getting a chance to do cool stuff, 
and it's varied stuff, just enjoy it.
 I guess I'm a believer in the randomness
 of life rather than it being a linear trajectory or an arc,
 a consistent smooth arc, towards anything. 
Riz Ahmed

i have random.
patches of flowers.
i mow around them.
all spring and summer.
until them are no longer.
and them i mow them down.
who am i to make the decision.
to mow them down initially.
plenty of others, i suppose...
then they would just be.
stunted versions of themselves.
no body wants to see that.
let them BE.
let them grow.
my simple "happyness."
my yard, all about me.
just BE.

i hope you will join me.

...just BE. lifetime...







(i imagine Ki saying this to Sondra...)
Someone asked me about you the other day & I said something 
like she is not too tall & her hair is such & such a color. 
I said that, because how could I tell them you are like the play 
of sunlight on water, dancing to music we don’t often hear. 
Or the song of doves, like the soft sounds a woman makes 
when she is truly kissed. Or the way people smile at each other
 when there is nothing to hide. How could I tell them you are 
the way love looks when it walks through this world of ours? 
How could I say that to them before I spent a lifetime saying that to you?
~Storypeople

on this day.
he will be married.
and his beautiful story.
continues.
this momma's heart is full.

Everything is right here. If you can't see it, it's because you can't see it. Not because it's not here.

...just BE. magic...




There's magic
everywhere
all the time
& when you're
having a hard time
seeing it,
it's usually because
you've already decided that 
if it was really magic,
it'd look like something
else.
~Brian Andreas

my back deck.
where i sit and rock.
