To begin, you must look to the feet. You don’t want to be the first to fight, you want to be the last one breathing. 

what follows is a guide.

1] What you want is a map, a set of directions, rules that will bring you to a singular end. What you get is a shell, each turn bringing a foreign note, unexplored. Follow what is known alone, and you will end in nothing. 

2] Use a computer. Phones are not compatible.

3] There is no chaos. Only a sequence, to be found. The sound is clear, in pattern, if you are willing to listen. When you are lost:

a] stop. Sometimes, the land reveals itself without plea. 

b] scroll. Movement is always helpful. 

c] move right, or spiral down.

d] loosen your fingers and hover. When you have reached the hands, touch. 

e] click. Look to the bottom, that can always be trusted for direction. & remember, all arrows may be pressed. 

f] Look. Actually. Look.

g] a last resort. Find home. The edges of the landscape hold what is known. 

4] If you are lost beyond yourself, seek help. A reply to this will do. You will be seen within nightfall. 

5] If you have stumbled upon a ditch, a dead-end- speak. The land is new and young. A note is always welcome. 

6] To begin, you must start. There is no way around this. 

7] Send love. Or a word. We will start –

9] Find your way to a new word. Whatever you do is beautiful, is beautiful.

9] A spotlight.

    Your words have a certain ring of honesty and truth and it’s ….just…so so wonderful. I loved every single word and my only regret is that I didn’t find your blog sooner. Loving the look of the new website though. ❤ ❤ But hey, does that mean you are gonna stop posting here then? 😦
