" bless us our successes "


we find ourselves full up with great praise and a sense of accomplishment. this sensation sits heavy in the body, like a stack of dense lovely soul-defining pancakes interleaved by the butter of calm and topped by the maple syrup of sweet victories.

it is very important to acknowledge these achievements, for the love of the craft, for the tenacity of the will, for the Self, for the motivation to be refilled.

in times of great doubt and tenuous inspiration, we should never waver more than a second. what we are doing is important, realistic, beautiful, and achingly valid.

tonight's homework:

miss me while i'm out of town for a few days, mourn the moment's absence, then welcome me home when i return. oh yeah, and find the time to grab a friend and make stuff.
