We need to talk...

Sometimes the conversation you don't want to have
is the conversation you need to have.

Not all stories are true

Each of us has stories to tell. 
The important thing to remember is this:
Not all the stories -- not even the ones we tell ourselves --
are true...

Uniquely you

Though you clothe yourself to fit in with your surroundings,
you will always remain totally, uniquely you.

The incompleteness of things

Our lives are spent in an endless search
for wholeness and completion.
But it is the incompleteness of things
that pulls us ever forward into the light...

The grounding of Now

Both life and art are about striking a balance:
between light and dark, between work and play,
between the grounding of Now and the blue sky of Hope;
between the momentum that comes from longing 
and the grateful, grace-filled acceptance of belonging.

Family ties

Sometimes those family ties get us tangled up in knots.
But what ties us down may also be what's keeping us afloat...

What every parent knows

Just because they're not cute little babies anymore,
just because the project is close to done, not nearly so much fun,
just because the end is near and you are getting tired --
that doesn't mean you can walk away:
you still need to keep an eye on things; 
keep everyone in line...
