what do you do
with the pieces
of a broken heart
and how can a man
remain in the light
Then you said it yourself.
That is ok.
Hold on if its worth it.
This reminded me of something very personal to me… Thanks for the flashback.
if it was too personal
I hope the flashback
some positive light
I’m slowly learning that the past shapes us, but the present can reshape us, if we let go of the past and allow ourselves to move forward… understanding the past doesn’t always make it easier to let go of…. in fact, trying to understand it can keep us mired in it….
If that’s you in the photo, seems we have the same hairstylist. :-)
absorbing your words
I’m the best looking ugly guy you’ll ever meet…;-)
The best looking ugly guy? Dude.. you are nowhere close to being ugly.
REALLY good with
ahhh… so he Photoshopped out the weird hairs in your ears, and the wart, and the 3rd eyeball? I understand… he did a good job.
There is no undoing anything in this life – no rewind button! Everything good or bad makes us what we are today, and sometimes the bad choices, the bad actions, painful as they are at the time, often turn out to be the greatest lessons for me, and what causes me to move forward most. :) I love the photo, I’m guessing it’s you!!?
I was listening
to an old cd today
this weight is a gift
like I had to see
what I could lift
popped in my head
Beautiful photo portrait–shadow and light, doubt and an ice cream cone of marshmallows and jelly beans, past, pieces, understanding? Heart. Peace, baby.
for your thoughtful
What’s done is done, lessons learned, letting go and moving forward xx
And I like what was translated in Chinese.
the musician/artist regarding imagery in the song “Your Legs Grow”
“When a challenge presents itself to you, it is so easy to have a kind of panicky feeling where you think, ‘Oh my god – if that happened to me, I would die. If I have to stay in this job I’ll die, or if I lose that person, I’ll die.’ And once in a while, those things you think will kill you happen. You know, someone breaks up with you, or one of your parents gets really sick or something. But you make it through anything, really.
And the image that was in my mind was that if you were out at sea, and you were freezing and thought you were going to drown – somehow we have the capacity to get over anything and the image that I had in mind was that your legs would just grow down to the bottom and you’d walk out.
We are capable of rescuing ourselves. I was holding onto that thought or being hopeful about it, since I was going through a hard time in a relationship.”
the album “answers questions of lust and deception, greed and love, joy and regret and the rites of passage you weren’t quite ready to pass through.”
What a beautiful song.
We are capable of rescuing ourselves – survival of the fittest one could say. Things will happen to us and we can choose to fight and survive or bow to defeat. But it is only during struggles can we find out the full potential of our strength and willingness to hold on.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Synchronicity’s path is aligning so perfectly today. I read a quote by the Zoba Beta poet that really made me pause for long enough to realize I’ve been going about this whole ‘peace of mind’ thing completely in the wrong direction. He said.
TRUTH is often sacrificed for the sake of stability and peace.
I just wrote this
around an hour ago
is a subjective term ?
my personal truths
Came back to look at this again…
for your empathy
Connections of my own life..
I live in my past often because it holds some of the grandest tales! It is also great that I can relive them like a movie, cry and feel sheer destruction all over again but know that I am still here, cannot be ripped apart no matter how much the things inside try and those memories are mine, all mine, no one elses. It is perception, it is beauty in all things.
trying to get everything
some sort of
I’ve cut all my hair off a couple times from anguish…it looks better on you.
Also hitchhiked across country and back because I couldn’t find any other way to distract my heart and needed to stay moving…so young then. But it was leveling and I trust my body now. I can hurt …deep as the grand canyon. I’ll live with it…an open choice. I won’t let it stop me from loving. I’ll make room. My heart is big enough.
I keep learning to let go of my side of seeing.
Yikes! Don’t know how I missed this post till today.
I know it’s a picture but it’s interesting to look you ….straight in the eye …
is one thing
a tooth extracted
always a grind …
Lovely photo. enjoying your writing.
thanks so much
It was nice to see with whom I speak. I look for strength and warmth. You possess both. Blessings
It’s easy when friends are so deserving. Have a wonderful day.
sigh…it is OK to let it go…sometimes it just doesn’t want to let go of you
as I go …
The traumas of my past have shaped me. They have also fueled me, filling me with courage, and strength. It took quite some time but I have come to terms with all that happened and have dealt with it. I can now move on and enjoy the present, really “smelling the roses” each and every day. I know many who are still struggling with past feelings. It is good to be free.
thanks for sharing
thanks for modelling
that is okay, very much okay
in fact I think it is the only true okay there is
a done is a done
the future you
wish to see
Fierceness and vulnerability. Quite a combination. Thanks for sharing you in a photo. Good luck at the dentist/oral surgeon tomorrow. Peace.
Oh oops. I should pay closer attention. Glad it went well.
This is one of your best ones in my humble opinion you amaze me every single post
written over a year ago
This speaks volumes to me, as I struggle to release my past at times. Thank you for sharing your words; they are inspiring.
we all go through
You originally posted this the week before I started blogging. I always wondered (image wise) about the man behind the depth and the courage.
I’ve followed and read your work for nearly 1.5 years. In that time I’ve sensed and felt not only your anguish but what seems, on the surface, your resiliency. The strength you’ve grown into is noble. I hope this is a fair characterization.
To this day, I still I still see clearly, through the mist, the photo of your father-in-law guiding his daughter into your cherished world. You have much for which to be grateful.
are the man
a broken heart, healing, strengthening, different now, but scars embracing…..
I love the chinese video translation, the cycle of life continues, it has to, we live and learn and show.
Your photo is a beautiful portrait of light and shadow, your handsome face searching, discerning.
caressing old scars
