One hand folded into another

You find value in my deficiencies, and fullness, in my vacancy. You find stability in my inconsistency, and bliss, in my melancholy. You find fortitude, in my frailty, and competence, in my inability. You find seriousness, in my buffoonery, and clarity, amidst my perplexity. You find exquisiteness, when I feel ugly, and offer hope, to […]

Just Jump

Stop second guessing things, just jump, you can’t really know what it’s like unless you fully commit to the experience. You’ve heard this advice before, right? I know I have. It’s terrific advice to give to another person, yet terrifying advice to receive. Yeah! Go for it.  Screw whatever conventional thought may say regarding a […]
