If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it.
Your doubts and hesitations will infect your execution.
Timidity is dangerous: Better to enter with boldness.
Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity.
Everyone admires the bold; no one honors the timid.

Electric peach fuzz –
biting the hand that feeds and
shedding all this skin.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 175.”
I miss the days when
we would talk for miles. It all
feels far – out of reach.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 145.”
We never know what will happen next, what we will see, and what important person will come into our life, or what important person we will lose. Life is change, constant change, and unless we are lucky enough to find comedy in it, change is nearly always a drama, if not a tragedy.
But after everything, and even when the skies turn scarlet and threatening, I still believe that if we are lucky enough to be alive, we must give thanks for the miracle of every moment of every day, no matter how flawed.
Beneath a Scarlet Sky // Mark T. Sullivan
Until they become conscious they will never rebel,
and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.
1984 // George Orwell
digging through dusty
memories, trying to find
my smile from the past
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 143.”
I only wish you
could see how much I have changed.
I hope you’d be proud.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 129.”
the courage it took to get out of bed each
to face the same things
over and over
// Charles Bukowski
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.
// Thich Nhat Hanh
Our ability to adapt is amazing.
Our ability to change isn’t quite as spectacular.
// Lisa Lutz
