“'as you are.' says the universe.
‘after…’ you answer.
‘as you are.’ says the universe.
‘before…’ you answer.
‘as you are.’ says the universe.
‘when…’ you answer.
‘as you are.’ says the universe.
‘how…’ you answer.
‘as you are.’ says the universe.
‘why…’ you answer.
‘because you are happening now. and your happening
the thing that both keeps me alive and brings me to my knees.
you don’t even know how exquisite you are.
as you are.’
says the universe through tears.”

“In the beginning, it’s going to feel wrong, like self-indulgence. But it’s not indulgent or weak to be self-compassionate. It takes a lot of strength.”

“Having lived half a century you would think one would have adjusted to it by now, but for some ridiculous reason I am forever bothered by the change to or from Daylight Savings Time. I know, it’s only an hour one way or the other and always falls conveniently on a Sunday when most people have nothing to do. But it still discombobulates me for a few days after it’s happened. I’ll look at the clock and some strident voice inside says, “It’s THAT late?” or “I have a whole hour to kill before I go? I thought it was time.” The sky is too bright for that time of evening, or too dark for that time of morning. Small annoyances, like having no hat when it starts to rain, no milk for the coffee, the car alarm out on the street that doesn’t stop screaming even after minutes, the extra hour or the lost hour that you thought belonged to you but doesn’t.”

"People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if it were necessary to understand, when it’s simply necessary to love."

Claude Monet

“We can never see the sun rise by looking into the west.”

if i knew where
i was going next,
i wouldn't be taking so many
or reading all these books,
trying to divine my future
in pillowcases
and stitched book bindings,
lost in the small decisions
of each day,
only a little bit numb.

i am the inevitable wanderer,
the girl who always says
but never knows
how to leave.
