oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

storms that didn’t come


What I see is a brilliant sky. What I remember is this is all that became of some ominous looking clouds. What I think is that sometimes we spend so much time preparing for the worst that we don’t take the time to enjoy what is actually in front of us.


If you spend your whole life

waiting for the storm,

you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.

size doesn’t matter

Coming in from a walk one afternoon, I reached in to pull the door open and touched something small and fuzzy. I immediately knew it was the scary creature who'd been flitting around my light fixture all morning. What I see is a little guy who I wouldn't want to cross. What I think is that we were equally afraid of each another.


Size doesn’t matter,

neither in our capacity for fear,

nor in our ability

to put the fear in others.
