Contemplation

My contemplation
Of all life’s impermanence
Stars subtle decay

Grace

Grace does not come easily. It is a product of hard work and rugged determination. It is the steadfast willingness to move through the pain without blame, shame or disappointment. It is the ability to drown out the noise and attack life with laser like focus. It is the resolve to rise above the messiness of all that is human and embrace all that is beautiful. 

Struggling
To keep my shit
In one sock

Firelight

Snuggled in sleeping bags
Under a starry canopy
We whisper sweet nothings
While the campfire wanes

Clouds

Kaleidoscopic clouds
Change from umbra to blue
My internal storm

For far too long I used the inability to be what I was in my youth as an excuse to not be the best I could be now. I’m not planning on getting back into dance or body building but this extra flab gotta go. I want to feel better in body and spirit so I had a funeral for my youth and am looking forward to the next phase ‘cause I got shit to do.

Focus

1857F2F9-F0C2-4106-9DDC-AD73B4D63123

In a world gone crazy with hate,
Divisiveness and exclusion
I will fight with laser like focus
Double my efforts to be tolerant,
Patient and compassionate
I will be the model of beauty and light
