Hi.

Thanks for stopping by.  This is my invitation into my life, work, and our collective creativity, love, and kindness.  I hope you enjoy your time here.  

WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE YOU?

WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE YOU?

Thoughts on curiosity, grace, curiosity, and acceptance

Humans are so complex, and it is so hard to understand each other. It is hard to rest in the tension of our questions. Lately, I feel like all I have are questions. At my best, I am curious. At my worst, I am disheartened and judgmental.

This poem is about the curiosity. It is a reminder that everyone has a story. Our normal is not necessarily normal. Normal is not necessarily right. Not understanding is not necessarily wrong.

There is space. There is space for questions, curiosity, patience, understanding, diversity, emotions, experiences, and honesty. Because I have no idea what it's like to be you.

Let's extend that grace.

 

i wonder what it's like for you
what it's like in your head
do your thoughts swirl like mine?
are your days filled with dread?
do you see what I see?
what determines your choices?
do you feel what I feel?
can you make sense of the voices?
i wonder what it's like for you
what your normal entails
what are your hopes? what do you believe?
what do you think will prevail?
i wonder what your dreams are made of
what your happiness means
mostly, you confuse me
but mostly,
things are not as they seem
