About

“I think,” Tehanu said in her soft, strange voice, “that when I die, I can breathe back the breath that made me live. I can give back to the world all that I didn’t do. All that I might have been and couldn’t be. All the choices I didn’t make. All the things I lost and spent and wasted. I can give them back to the world. To the lives that haven’t been lived yet. That will be my gift back to the world that gave me the life I did live, the love I loved, the breath I breathed.”

― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Other Wind

I believe in a God that created us
I don’t believe in the God we created
whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim —or whatever
I don’t believe a God so petty as to have a “chosen” people
other than in some tribal wet dream

I don’t believe in experience learned from a book
no matter how avowedly holy
I don’t believe in preaching what one has read
as knowledge
I don’t believe in praise or prayer
God has no use for praise
and prayer is a lack of faith
unless you think God works by petition
like some bureaucratic government

I do believe in gratitude
I do believe each of us have direct connection with divinity
that needs no mediation

and I believe in magic

We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.

-Paulo Coelho

Blessed be: brother, sister, friends that are both
mother, father,
grandmother, grandfather, teachers,
son, daughter,
grandchildren,
wife and soulmate,
animal allies, angels in disguise,
devils that fuck with me to keep me on my toes
I am truly blessed, truly thankful
