Sunlight is her friend
as the days sooner end.
Even with a cardigan
draped against her tanned back,
as she walks beyond the cross-country track.
There is a giddy glee upon her face
with whispers of mine,
from brow to brace,
and in both her and my smile line.
What we share is more
than our twinkling Lazzo eyes,
or the way our faces twitch when we tell lies,
or how we both have a little snore.
Sweet, little, now tall,
and even more gorgeous
precious baby to beautiful woman;
who loves (just as I) to peruse the mall,
who is quirky but perky and perfect as a cactus;
you, my sweet cousin, mi prima pero de alguna manera también mi hermana pequeña, my littler sister from another mister, your heart is my sun.

A decade and half
If I could let advice
leave my lips and float
on the zephyrs of time
to my tiny ears as I lay
in the arms of the doctor who snatched me screaming from
the warmth of My mother’s womb.
I would say -
Enjoy these first fifteen years kid,
life gets hard real soon.
Hi there, sweet friends. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about connection, creating, and making time for the things I need and want and love. I know I’m not alone in this: we all have so many demands and just 24 hours in a day to do our level best to meet them. I’ve been a little sad that over the past several months I’ve not had as much time to give to the Mending Space. I have such great expectations of what this circle of love and light could be: books to write, workshops to attend, pieces to stitch, poems to write... But I also have great limitations. You see, six months ago I set out on an intense, deliberate, necessary healing journey. Healing for my body, mind, soul, and relationships, too. I could have never known the time and energy this healing would require. But it has been infinitely rewarding. The improvements in my health and my heart have been so vast and deep, I can’t deny that choosing this was the best thing. But there is still a ways to go and still a part of me that is sad that I don’t have as much time to stitch, and sing, and write, and pull textile kits together, and connect more with you. Perhaps that’s why this poem came through a few weeks ago. It’s a reminder that this is just a season thing. And there is a Keeper within. She’s holding needle, thread, and old linens, whispering, “These will be here when you’re ready. Take your time, love. There is more than one way to mend.” If you don’t have time to give to your passion because of obstacles and constraints, hold fast, friend. There is a Keeper within. Sending you all my love...

I still do portraits I promise 😂😂 I was gonna put a sadboi poem here but I guess y'all r spared another day... Just kidding!
sad man of a rotten land
running somewhere, but nothings planned -
stumble on the rocky roads
but never cease to stand;
no one ever promised you
the journey would be grand
just that there would be a heaven
waiting at the end. // Foks .

Yesterday is gone, so are
the mistakes we've done.
Today has come by the
Grace from the One.
His mercies are new every morning.
His steadfast love is what keeps us going.
Great is your faithfulness, Lord Jesus.
Great is your unending love towards us.
Thank you for loving a sinner like me.
Thank you for forgiving a wretch
Today I call out your name and
I know You will reply.
You will never leave me, nor forsake me. You'll always be by my side.
Yesterday is gone and so are
the mistakes we've done.
But today has come by the
Grace from the One.
