Man, some days, it just feels like the world crushes you like a bug, and then you end up thinking of that final fight scene in Men in Black, and you get totally grossed out at the idea of all those bugs being squashed and eeeewwwww-ickk-gross!
Ugh… God, please, don’t make me figure this one out – just do as you wish, and I will follow suit wholeheartedly. Your will be done fully and forever. In your name I pray. Amen.
Falling asleep at the wheel is a dangerous thing. Please, be sure to get enough sleep, especially when driving. There are so many people in their world who, you cannot realized, will miss you oh, so desperately.
God, keep us safe, please. In your name, I pray. Amen.
Right about now, I am missing my old Golden Retrievers. It has been roughly 16 or 18 years since the father died, and a handful of years fewer for the sun… and yet, here we are, missing them, almost suddenly.
I want those hugs and loves and belly rubs. That was an amazing time in life.
Some days, you just take a spontaneous trip to pick up – dig up, more like – a small garden’s worth of plants, some edible and others not,as well as a bunch of old bricks and maps and various randok items. Sometimes, it can even be a family affair and end in a crawfish dinner.
Those are truly the days.
Gratitude, God. Thank you.
Eyes closed, I lean forward,
smelling a scent
that is both known to me
and new to me.
Though it is strange,
this knowing and not knowing,
and even the scent itself,
I like having this scent
and its originator
by my side.
‘Arise,’ they told her.
‘Do it like this,’ they said.
‘It’ll be perfect,’ they promised.
But these were lies they said.
And so, instead of stepping up to being who they expected her to be, she stood up for who she truly was made to be.
And the world never was quite the same,
Once she’d set it aflame
With all that she truly was.
