Flower. Day 6 of a 7-day nature challenge. #flower #nature #photography 


Editing is a brutal, beautiful thing. I'm massaging words I wrote over the course of a year, and I think I've finally worked out most of the kinks. I worry I'll never be completely satisfied even when I'm done. But I figure that's exactly how I'm supposed to feel. 

Sandra's art is a perfect fit for my words, and I'm so proud of the work we are doing. Soon, you will all see it. Not today, but soon. 💚

You drift in

In a training last week, we were asked to write a story about courage. Of course, I wrote a poem...

You drift in 
and sit too close 
to my skin. I cringe. You
look nothing like me. We 
can't be friends. But 
then you speak 
and I begin 
to wonder 
about the power 
we share. Your space 
feels less foreign, 
your tears are more clear. 
I listen, with my hand 
on my chin 
to the breaks in your speech. 
I watch 
the hairs on your arm 
rise from bumped skin. 
You feel what I feel. 
We are the same. 
We don't share a life, 
but we do share the game.

The Kiss

Your slime and moisture
will mix
in a 
science of ancient beauty
wrapped up in stars,
an Egyptian Milky Way
of crevasses and
