progress… not perfection


The present moment contains past and future. The secret of transformation, is in the way we handle this very moment. — Thich Nhat Hanh – Understanding Our Mind


we only see as deeply as we look. even then, we have no guarantee that we will really see.

i certainly realize how easily it is to look past things that cause me discomfort because the fear of the unknown beneath that is more powerful. even when life seems so painful the way it is, there are many times i would rather endure than risk not knowing what’s next.

faith definitely helps with this, but it doesn’t erase it. lately i have been referring to the white lies i tell myself and other as “flash cards” that i have preprinted and hold up as answers sometimes when having a conversation about the truth i don’t feel ready to face.

a big part of the work in front of me is to become aware when i am using flash cards instead of being authentic. sounds easy i know, but lemme tell you it ain’t at all. i am an accomplished storyteller and faker.

“It Takes A Lot To Know A Man”

It takes a lot to know a man It takes a lot to understand The warrior, the sage The little boy enraged

It takes a lot to know a woman A lot to understand what’s humming The honeybee, the sting The little girl with wings

It takes a lot to give, to ask for help To be yourself, to know and love what you live with It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel The slow reveal of what another body needs

It takes a lot to know a man A lot to know, to understand The father and the son The hunter and the gun

It takes a lot know a woman A lot to comprehend what’s coming The mother and the child The muse and the beguiled

It takes a lot to give, to ask for help To be yourself, to know and love what you live with It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel The slow reveal of what another body needs

It takes a lot to give, to ask for help To be yourself, to know and love what you live with It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel The slow reveal of what another body needs

It takes a lot to live, to ask for help To be yourself, to know and love what you live with It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel The slow reveal of what another body needs

What are you so afraid to lose? What is it you’re thinking that will happen if you do? What are you so afraid to lose? (You wrote me to tell me you’re nervous and you’re sorry) What is it you’re thinking that will happen if you do? (Crying like a baby saying “this thing is killing me”) What are you so afraid to lose? (You wrote me to tell me you’re nervous and you’re sorry) What is it you’re thinking that will happen if you do? (Crying like a baby saying “this thing is killing me”) You wrote me to tell me you’re nervous and you’re sorry Crying like a baby saying “this thing is killing me”
