a poop, cold, wet weather day with poop stuff to go with it. so a warm lit photo and a little writing i found from last july is my offering of the day...
In a three day intense migraine stupor, I lie in bed, thoughts are drifting by off in the distance like ships on the ocean you can just barely make out from the shore... One of the thoughts caught my attention - We live in a world now run by popularity contests of all kinds and variations. People, beautiful books, being ripped to shreds left scattered around in hopes that someone will look at a piece you left somewhere, and maybe they will decide you matter because a part of that piece appeals to them somehow - and another person may read that half a page you dropped on the ground - a part of a piece of who you are and deem you worthy of... Worthy of... Worthy of... And before you know it - pieces of you are scattered all over, and lots of people are half liking you, while most people barely even know one tenth of you... People, books, torn up, fragmented.
I don't fit in.
If I you give my book, I will give you my whole book, my heart keeping the most important pages marked just like we once did with an old school tasseled book mark - so you know where to go back to, where to reread, what parts are the most sacred, most valuable to me. I do not hand my book over to many. But when I do - it's all of me that does. And if you let me - I will read yours front to back, over and over, and I will mark any pages you'd like with my tasseled heart to honor yours like I honor my own. Front to back. Again and again. Come as you are. Be whole in the completeness of the book of you and know all parts are worthy of being read and cherished. I'm not interested in the highlights or the sleeve, nor the forward, all you. Just you. Your whole book.
