Listener - Wooden Heart
We’re all born to broken people on their most honest day of living and since that first breath; We’ll need grace that we’ve never given I’ve been haunted by standard red devils and white ghosts and it’s not only when these eyes are closed these lies are ropes that I tie down in my stomach, but they hold this ship together tossed like leaves in this weather and my...

apocalypse of heaven
I found myself walking around an unfamiliar place. I was aware that this was not life, that somehow I reached whatever came next. My idea of heaven. My elevated state of consciousness. It was completely new to me. It was an empty, concrete environment. It was the blank canvas of my heart and mind. Everyone I walked by I have seen at some point in my life. I recognized them. I knew them. With...
The Gestalt Prayer:
I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, And you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped.

the only way to fly
before cell phone and portable technological life devices, a plane ride was a means of opening a world of communication with someone you would most likely never hear from again. to have one of the greatest conversations of your lifetime with a person, who you know and will somewhat purposely will never reenter your life, in today’s age of headphones, excel spreadsheets and kindles, makes it...
i never wanted a saturday to be at my feet more in my life. i must catch that early morning flight.
echoes, silence, patience and grace all of these moments i’ll never replace no fear in my heart, absence of faith all i want is to be home
And kind and courteous is a life I’ve heard But it’s nice to say that we played in the dirt my dear Cause here we are, Here we are Here we are We’re still here What a beautiful mess this is It’s like taking a guess when the only answer is yes Through timeless words, and priceless pictures We’ll fly like birds, not of this earth And times they turn, and hearts...
tear down the house
my mom returned from buffalo with a brochure on fences. she showed us the fence they picked out to go around the pool during her most recent trip to visit her boyfriend of 5 months. now my sisters are arguing the reasons why they are not allowed to have TVs in their new rooms. their new rooms—8 hours away from this house in New Jersey, which will be sold and 8 hours from Chicago. upon...
running through quicksand with a heartbeat the world could feel searching for road maps, signs and anything slightly familiar i don’t know where we go from here
“But most of our familiarity was hard-earned, strong and resilient familiarity, dredged up from mystery, difference, conflict and sometimes even from anger and despair. As a result, we often had plenty of mystery in our relationship. We had to create most of our familiarity, but it was the kind of familiarity we could depend on to pull us back together.”

i may not have the coolest life. i may not have the most up-to-date chic wardrobe. i may not be completely organized. i may not come from money. i may want instant gratification a little too much. i may not have a stable nuclear family. i may not think i’m in the wrong. i may not have my life entirely together. i may not always know the right thing to do. i may not have crazy-awesome...

I learned something extremely significant about myself this morning, and it started when i stabbed myself in the finger with cosmetic scissors to have my “Ah-ha!” moment. At first its like, “I’m not like that-no way-that’s not me at all.” Dead wrong, buddy. It’s way overdue I get myself off this high horse. It’s something I’ve been for years...

Shaving my legs while listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Billie Holiday sure makes me feel like a woman. Sure bunch of classy people they are.
it’s a terrible sound when nobody is listening.
Can we turn up the volume again? The quiet strikes me with anxiety.
I’ve fallen out of favor and I’ve...
