  • Sometimes you have to go through things.
    There is no other direction and choice becomes a quaint notion.

    We need to practice for these times because I tell you they are coming.
    Practice every day because it will be the well of strength when all else runs out.

    Memories, dreams and hopes are a shifting landscape.
    Move through them.

    When water hits a rock it goes around.
    Over time water wears down the rock.
    Over time water builds new rock.

    We are rock and we are water and we are going round.
