A Shadow Soul

'A house is not a home without a pet.' alongside a tortoiseshell cat
They don’t care who you are.
They don’t care what you do.
They don’t care where you live.
Pets just care that you’re there.
❥ A pet becomes a home’s visible soul.

“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.” — Jean Cocteau

Everyone Matters


creative spoonie,
dependent rebel,
impaired poet,
optimistic realist,
so much more,
sometimes less;
I AM human, as are you:
Everyone Matters 💜 & ☕️

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
— Aristotle

“‘Everyone Matters’ is about everybody’s value, that we all count, that we should all stand tall for who we are, as we are,” the campaign founder HealthCliff Rothman told The Huffington Post in an email. “It’s about judging each other, and ourselves less.”

My Declaration

My Declaration of Self-esteem by Virginia Satir

No one adds up exactly like me:
Everything that is me is authentic because I alone choose it; What I say, do, think, & feel at a given moment is authentic & represents where I am at that moment in time.

Waiting is..

Like the ebb and flow of tides. No one can do anything to change them. When it is time to wait, you must wait. - Haruki Murakami​

As with all nature, we must evolve or stagnate.
Evolution is but the ebb and flow of change.
The give & take of growth is not part for part.
We cannot trade ourselves in without denying who we are.
All that we ever are forms the foundation for who we will be.
Becoming is a journey born of natural selection.
