Get A Hairbrush

Lately, I have found myself inside a new feeling.  Almost as if things are finally making sense.  I understand the hard things better and appreciate the easy things more.  I taste loneliness but can sense the fullness of my life too.  I respect the need for gratitude.  The devastating but timely lateness of wisdom.  If I could name this new feeling I would call it,…

Write Yourself Down

Do you know who you are?  Like really know.  And do you show that real self to others?  So much so that everyone would feel like they knew you forever.  Realer than the chairs, the tables, the roads.  More real than anything else real.  I have been asking myself lately if I know who I am.  And not the kind of question that leads to…

Just imagine for a second.  If we could all look inside each other’s journals.  All of a sudden the whole world would be revealed, no mysteries left to solve.  No hidden agendas.  No misunderstandings.

The Pretenders

Did you know that one of the most authentic relationships of my life is with you? I sit here every week writing exactly what I want to say.  There are no pretenses.  No adjusting my words.  I just tell you things as they are.  As the years have gone by, I understood the importance of this letter in my own life.  It is the one…
