...ninety six...


Do not stand at 
my grave and weep.
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am the thousand
 winds that blow.
I am the sunlight 
on ripened grain.
I am the diamond 
glints of snow.
I am the gentle
 autumn rain.
Do not stand at 
my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

Stopping Time 

Today, for some reason, I see how short our lives actually are & how often I forget to look in your eyes & stop time entirely & say, You have made this life for me.

there is one thing that must happen:
a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your 
destruction. 

This is your birth. "

...one double zero...


Let your heart break daily.
In conversation. 
Over song lyrics.
During the pause right before the sun rises.
While you're sipping coffee + looking 
into the eyes of someone
talking about something they love.
For its when we break a little-
we come alive.
It's in this space of feeling,
we get to expand.
And it's here,
in our vulnerability and openness,
we step into our greatest selves.

there's so much more

the page you 
were stuck on.

BE confused, it's where
you begin to learn new
things. BE broken, it's 
where you begin to heal.
BE frustrated,  it's where
you start to make
authentic decisions. BE
sad, because if we are
brave enough we can hear
our heart's wisdom 
through it.

BE whatever you are right now.
No more hiding. You are worthy,
always.
~S.C. Laurie

Retain Your Power

No matter how great the pressure, or how confused the situation,  hold tight to your  personal  power of choice.  You always have the final say, to make your own choices, according to your own beliefs.

    Even though there are  days  I wish I could change some things that happened in the  past, there's a reason the rear view mirror is so small and the windshield is so big, where you're headed is much more important  than what you've left behind.

    at the heart
    of each of us,
    whatever
    our imperfections,
    there exists a
    silent pulse of 
    perfect rhythm,
    which is
    absolutely
    individual
    and unique, and yet
    which connects
    us to
    everything else.
    ~George Leonard

    mom asked me to photograph.

    It's important to make friendships that are deeper than gossiping, drinking, smoking, and going out. Make friends who you can go to breakfast with, make friends you can cry with, make friends who will support your life goals and BElieve in you.

    all I ask is
    that you love
    me with a madness
    that scares you
    sometimes. 
    because in that 
    moment it's 
    choosing between 
    what you feel
    and what you fear.
    and even though 
    it's normal to 
    feel fear, don't 
    ever fear what
    you feel.
