My Other Babies

Writing pieces for publication is like having children.

Each one I give birth to (write) will be nurtured (reviewed & edited) until it is grown-up (complete). Then I reluctantly let it go out into the world (publish it). My hope is that it is written well enough to have an impact on the world in a positive way.

My descendants (inspired audience) will continue the good that was started with just an idea or brief thought to hopefully make this world a better place.

May my legacy (my other babies) be remembered well.

Beauty In An Ugly Place

Untitled

Awaken in you the love for yourself.

Rise up even more in the feelings of empathy and compassion.

Channel that goodness outwards.

Free others to feel the same in their skin.

Lift them up to greater heights.

Incite others to follow a path of love.

Your beauty will continue to become more elaborate but distinct.

Change the world until it becomes more inhabitable.
