The Invitation

I'll meet you here, where the paved road ends and days are synced with the clock in the sky where downloading silence improves our connection and loading our bones with movement lightens the weight of the world where curiosity is the only currency of value and its dividends are paid in moonshine & sunsets where … Continue reading The Invitation

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time when I was very sad and very alone I would walk a certain stretch of beach for miles and dream of the woman I would like to be and say to myself, over and over: That woman is worth waiting to meet. I did that for years. It kept me alive. … Continue reading Once Upon a Time
