Changing The World


Life’s too short, and individual resources too limited, for a single being to accomplish everything single-handedly, and in a single lifetime. And so, if there’s a change you wish for the world, consider taking the world into confidence. If the thought behind your thought is powerful enough, it’ll work its way into other people. It’ll ignite them from within. And then, your thought, your idea won’t remain yours alone. It’ll grow beyond you. It’ll grow into, and inside people. The change you wish for, will grow from people to people. And it’ll continue to grow without, and after you.

My issue used to be, if the journey’s nice and of reasonable length, and the destination is just a point to be reached, sure the journey’s the bigger pleasure. But, if the journey’s hard and Continue reading The Journey Makes You Fit

That Something You Are


There are a thousand things that you could become. But you are already something. Become more of that. And then some more. And more. Until that something is wholly, uniquely you. Any other thing you would need to choose Continue reading That Something You Are

Let It Fly


If this resonates with you, maybe we are the same tribe.

Writing doesn’t come easy. Not to me. And it’s always personal. A part of me will find its way into every piece I write. Continue reading Let It Fly

Beautiful Hope


More: All too often we are fooled by advice and experience. We accept that certain things can never be made possible. It is this submission to “undeniable” arguments and facts that damages our spirit. It is this that kills our enthusiasm for games we might play with life. Struggle doesn’t kill us.
