Conditionally

 

I love you…conditionally…

Oh I know it breaks with tradition

And it’s not as appealing without the

Characteristic prefix UN that most often accompanies it.

But it’s more honest, and I value honesty.

All things in life are conditional if you think about it…

That’s not to say, that you cannot ever fuck up, make up, or be forgiven.

We are all human, some of us uniquely flawed.

It simply means I am not a doormat to be walked on, neglected, or treated unfairly.

There are lines that once crossed will permanently alter the here and now.

Paths we might choose to walk down from which we can never return.

We should all tread lightly, lovingly, on the landscape of intimacy.

Know that no matter how much I love you…

If there is ever cause to warrant the withdrawal of my love and support from you…

I will walk away, however broken, with what’s left of my heart.

Living in the Moment

Dani's Kern River Glass water

The absence of time against my pulsing

wrist is so curious to me…

 

Though nearly a year has passed the

delineations that mark its vacancy are

present still.

 

At first it was my plan to replace the

savvy trinket that has long fostered

the illusion of control over the hours passing…

 

But…life happened… as often it does, and I have

found myself instead re-defining my relationship

with time

A Little Bit of Happy!

20170102_140923

That’s me, right there… a little bit of color in an otherwise bland and pasty, dark and cloudy world. I took this photo today because it reminded me of part of my purpose. It was sort of an aha moment when I looked out the window, and it made me smile. We could all use a little smile, and a whole lot of Happy!  So here’s a little bit of color, just in case your world is a wee bit dark these days. 🙂 Oh, and Happy New Year! May 2017 be a great year for you, and for all of us. 🙂 Lets find our Happy and share it in abundance.
