I had nothing to say, so I listened.

I held myself above my skin, stretched thin, walked on tiptoe over its deep pockets and heard the faintest of voices in me.

Thought of how everything ties together or doesn’t. But life goes on. Every moment complete, in and of itself, no matter what comes before or after. That’s what I want to believe.

Every moment. 
So much of what we do is ordinary. Mundane. How much of ourselves have we given in trying to be more, to live apart from what anchors us to this world, to be seen, really seen?

Everything we know is stardust, is stardust. Beloved. First note, first beat, my flesh that weeps, laughs; flesh that dances on bare feet on grass.

A life a within a story within the story inside an echo. What you are is a shell, a set of chambers that spiral into nothing.

There’s creative process for you. Cross out a line and you don’t have a blank page.Bandaids are never enough to heal. There’s always a wound underneath. I’m thinking of how this is a kind of insecurity by itself. To speak without talking, writing without form.

Everything feels safe in your head: the more muddled it is in the real world, the more you have for yourself. I want to believe I want nothing for myself. That’s not true. I don’t think it ever was.

      Aww. You have deep spaces for spiraling into, but they cannot be empty. Not when you can weave such beautiful words to describe your journey. 💝

    We live in our minds and a lot of the time, asleep, within our dreams. I think the imagined reality is often a better reality.

    1. I love this. So often, it feels easier to stay inside this place where you control every grain of sand, every breath of air. Nothing comes close to it.

      To be honest, I didn’t know how to reply to this. But I saw the new website right now, and gosh, it’s a total experience. It’s so fun to explore it. This must have been a lot of hardwork, I can only imagine, but I think it will pay off. So, yes, you should be relieved, because it’s an amazing platform you have created.

    The mind is a world within itself. How we develop and navigate through it is important.
