ride the wave
sit with it,
but do they
hard it is for one person
to sit back and
let their mind
destroy their body?
because i do and i can’t sit with that.

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”

“And listeners, Night Vale is an ancient place, full of history and secrets…as we were reminded today. But it is also a place of the present moment, full of life, and of us. If you can hear my voice speaking live, then you know: we are not history yet. We are happening now. How miraculous is that. Goodnight, listeners. Goodnight.”

My joy likes to run from my body
quick as it can.
I’ve been practicing holding it
like I practice holding my breath at the pool.
I can do about half a lap
before my panic freaks out
on its little red whistle.
My panic is not a lifeguard
but you can’t tell my panic that.
My panic googled “how to perform CPR on yourself.”

“The other shoe is going to drop. Hard things are going to happen. Practicing for that, planning that, it won’t change that, and it will not hurt any less. But it’s our tolerance for vulnerability that really dictates how joyful of a life that we can lead.”

“Joy is the most vulnerable emotion we experience, and if you cannot tolerate joy, what you do is you start dress rehearsing tragedy.”
