 ” Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ”  ~ Rumi ~ If I were the one reading the signs… Line from movie we watched before our run. Who? Three mile run terminating in the termination of the who […]

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Today it’s raining. The desert is at last getting her due after many thirsty months–her flesh and bones are finally being nourished by the soggy gray clouds dumping their guts all over her dehydrated  body.

Writing to Strangers

I Just wrote a letter to a stranger, but she wrote to me first. I joined something called, “Letters in the Mail,” a few months ago. For only five dollars a month, I get handwritten letters ( xeroxed handwritten letters) from strangers every month. I think I get 3 or 4, but I haven’t been […]

Holy Shit

Cancer Galore. Young folks riddled with mean masses made possible by god knows what. Sirens and buzzes and beeps and chirping and hissing—more noise than I’m even letting on. Rush! Prioritze! Delegate! Breast, colon, and brain cancer…It’s so much more than you think. A tube in your gut, down your nose, your throat—a line in […]
