Tiny tears


Tiny tears make up an ocean,

Tiny tears make up a sea….

Messy Business


We all carry around so much pain in our hearts. love, pain and beauty they all seem to go together like one tiny confusing package. It’s a messy business – life – it’s hard to figure, it’s full of surprises… Some good and some bad.

Being human is a complicated gig

There’s a dark side to each and every human soul. We wish we were Obi-Wan Kenobi, and for the most part we are, but there’s a little Darth Vader in all of us. Thing is, this ain’t no either-or proposition. We’re talking about dialectics, the good and the bad merging into us. You can run but you can’t hide. My experience? Face the darkness. Stare it down. Own it. As brother Nietzsche said, being human is a complicated gig. So give that ol’ dark night of the soul a hug. Howl the eternal yes!
