Stand Down

All it took was one person to look him in the eyes.  They’d see everything.

Everything he had done… Everything he fought for… Everything he had seen, heard, felt… Everything he hoped for.  Everything he experienced… Then… And now.
That flag was his love and his heart.  All was for her.

It’s not over.  I got your six.

Dedicated to my veterans. Thank you.

Seek Peace

Anxiety – Sadness – Tiredness – Burnout – Restlessness – Irritation – Trauma – Health – Loss
A very…. short list of stresses that can impact anyone.

Take yours.
Close your eyes.
Let the water fall down over your head; the place we think and overthink.
Feel each one fall down your body with the water.
That’s it… Every last one whether listed here or not.
Over and over again until it takes each one.
Let it wash right off of you…
And down the drain.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. – Buddha

Lacking

I’ve never taken a photo, of myself, that MOVED… No no….. ROCKED, me.

Original Inspiration:
Boy Epic – Trust
Interview of Boy Epic on this song
(I read this after I took the photo)

I could sit here and write a smorgasbord of things to go with this photo.
I could give a schlew of reasons that drove me to take a photo “like this.”
I could be pro-active, and defend this photo (but I’m not).

I leave this here with no more words for now, except this . . .

BE strong, my friends.

Where I Am

Meeting people where they are sounds ideal in theory, but I have begun to wonder if most people truly understand what that means.  Then again, we as humans are so amazingly unique, that we’re synonym’d as “individuals.”  So, not only are we encouraged to accept people as they are/as they come (their baggage… their hangups… their experiences… their current realities… etc. etc. etc.), but we are also responsible for recognizing that people do… can… and will, think differently than us.  Furthermore, I wonder also if we REALIZE that it’s those very same people we’re asked to be tolerant of, that will be intolerant of us.  Is it at that point; that line; that we stick our noses up, and instead of being one of the few, say “If you can’t beat ’em… Join ’em,”?

If I told you what I was,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would you be scared?
I get the feeling just because,
Everything I touch isn’t dark enough
If this problem lies in me
