This boy has a beautiful heart. His heart knows how to love.

You could even say his heart /knew/ how to love, even before he was born.

In the other world (the one we live in before we are born into this one), this boy spent all of his time loving things. Rocks, bugs, trees, people. He brea…Read More

Grief is the space between what you have and what you wish you had

21 Feb, 2018

Grief is the space between what you have and what you wish you had. It is a rite of life.

There’s this subtle difference between entitlement and gratitude.

Subtle but immense.

I think I am working my way out of the one into the other.

WOUNDED HEALER

07 Dec, 2017

Look at the world
and all the ways
you are not
invited.

All the closed doors
