On Timing

Sometimes it's not about working hard, or giving it everything you've got,
Sometimes it's not about chasing your dreams 
or being better, or trying harder, or fighting harder.
Sometimes it's about timing. 
and sometimes, timing can be a dick. 
You can work hard enough, 
you can do everything right.
and you get screwed by that wily bitch right at the finish line.
And it sucks.
But that's okay, 
Recognise that it sucks - Cry, Scream, Yell, Throw all the things. 
then let it go.
Because sometimes it's not about working hard,
sometimes it's about things happening, when they're supposed to happen. 

Little Sister

When your little sister is your best friend you kinda already hit the jackpot, right? Then when she can whip this up. Well..

On Words.

letter writing means a whole lot of different things
to a whole lot of different people.
to me,
it's always been about love.
and kindness,
and light,
and hope.
and connecting with strangers,
around the corner,
over the road,
across the oceans.
it's always been about the words.
It's never been about the trinkets or the gifts or the bits and pieces.
don't get me wrong,
I appreciate it all.
but it's not what I'm searching for.
I'm searching for love stories,
book lists,
and tales of wild adventures.
I want to know what makes your heart break,
the plans you have,
and all your quirks and oddities.
I want words.
and if that's all you've got to give me,
I think we're going to be just fine.
