Beginning to recollect...
more than things i've seen
things i've felt
things i've touched
things that have touched me
things eaten
things left behind
sensory...
or pits and rinds 

Remembering the unseen
the unheard
the unknown
Portraits and pictures
blank on blank canvases
stretching beyond the horizon
being filled in

In one hand small, delicate, frail, tender
holding up a full sparkling tumbler
In a hand calloused, swollen, sore, aged and weathered
a tin cup echoes the emptiness of a hollowed out soul   

Half empty?
Half full?
Pessi-opti-mist?
Can anyone truly claim to fully be at all times, one or the other?

The Lord's Glorious sense of humor and irony
The challenge of
Bi-polarism...
in a Libra
trying so hard to find one's equilibrium
in a world so chaotic, upheaving, ever spinning

Diamond in the rough?
Or measuring cup?
Everything in between
decides to which side
the scales shall lean
Leo fiercely loyal, boisterous, passionate misunderstood
Sometimes too much of anything
can lead to ruin
when rushed at headstrong

Learning to appreciate
the Lovingkindness
the Beauty
the complexity
through the trials
you gift to us
that may seem painful at first
but helps us to find our way to you
and embrace "the Way"
we each uniquely witness
for Your Glory!

I love the beat, twists and turns, ups and downs, and the exciting finales in your work. Thanks for the roller-coaster ride.

Praise God! I'm so glad things are being faced and dealt with. It's the best medicine, especially if you have God helping you along on your journey. With much love and big hugs to you.

Stand strong, brotha. We might feel lonely, but we're never alone. Word.

I love that. Its true......we're never alone on our journey. Not even for a second. 

And as for the glass half empty or half full thing......I'm the kind of person who says "I'm glad i have the glass and I'm thankful there's even anything in it!" :)
