board games














peace is sometimes found unexpectedly
strength is discovered in the lack
and
action is found in the not doing
risk is found in the staying
and
faith is found in the warmth of knowing who you are in the chaos of your days
when one spends their life going deep
feeling too much
talking too much
and
loving fiercely
sometimes
when one is not looking - truth sneaks up
and bites you on the ass
in shallow simplicity
and
sheer brilliance
action is found in the none action
in staying - sticking the landing
waiting veiled in the sureness
this space ....
this space.
hold fast
loving regardless
don't write a manifesto
shed ego
gamble your significance tenderly
roll the dice
and
go to the next place on the board
breathe
knowing love is found in Candy Land
not in Kierkegaard or Ayn Rand
Candy Land

    Beautiful Soozie :)! And I agree the pleasure one gets after realizing that someone read his/her post and actually appreciated it is a feeling noteworthy. I remember you once said we are similar earthlings, well I'd like to know more about you :)
