How are you?

How are you? Right now, slippered feet resting upon leather cushion, Typing, typing my mind into understanding. Ocean waves gather, tide pulls in, pulls out. Sun still flickers close to 7 at night. Birds are out, singing to one another, or are they singing to us? Telling us of a natural order that is still... Continue Reading →

Golden Fog

Sunlight dressed in mercury golden fog, Thirsty for pets, these dogs, these dogs. All this potential, unlimited time. Eager to see darkness finally shine. Remembering, remembering where credit is due, I'm not these words, I'm just the dew. Feed my soul, whisper me whole, Write my song, as I bow to this role. I'm a... Continue Reading →

They Die, They Return.

The walls still smell like you. No matter how much the room has changed, I still see the hospital bed there with you lying in it. You didn't want to die, I know. Was it for us? Did you give your life away for our transformation? You feel far yet close. How can I find... Continue Reading →

Simply.

Reverence: In Honor of MLK Jr.

And I asked her, what inspires you most about him? And she said, his voice, how he spoke out, endlessly, tirelessly, bravely. And she asked me what I thought. And I said, well, I suppose it’s that he saw the possibility of a world that had not yet been created. He stood for a dream,... Continue Reading →

Into Me You See

What I want to know is: Am I worth it? Not worthy. That is not my question. I am worthy, of course, it is my birthright, it is your birthright. Being here in human form made up of the exquisite natural world, We are all brilliant perfection. But what I want to know is as... Continue Reading →

Not Healer. Whole.

In training as a body-based therapist, the term healer tends to surface. Over and over again, I notice myself reject this word, as if it is some kind of hierarchical label - a belief that I could heal you. But, it is my belief, that all of us are already whole. How could we not... Continue Reading →

For Marriage: Union WITH

Two dear friends of mine, beneath a cloth roof held up by beloved friends and manzanita branches, married. In their honor, as per their request, I wrote this for them, inspired by their union: Kiss this truth. The truth of where you’re standing, of the land you stand on, Of the body that stands beside...
