Tag Archives: what makes you feel alive

no magic formula…

Put your hands on my knees,
she said,
and think of me as a book you’ve been dying to read.

—Michael Faudet—

stay close…

stay close


to anything that makes you
glad you are alive.

last night i sang…

I’m fighting myself. I know I am.
One minute I want to remember.
The next minute I want to live in the land of forgetting.
One minute I want to feel.
The next minute I never want to feel again.

— Benjamin-Alire-Sáenz —

good as drink is, it ends in thirst…

good as drink is, it ends in thirst

 It is in the shelter of each other that people live.

for starters…


for starters

(That’s what you are.)

this is what we (don’t) do…

this is what we (don't) do

At any moment, you have a choice,
that either leads you closer to your spirit
or further away from it.

— Thich Nhat Hanh —

perhaps you’re still sleeping…

perhaps you're still sleeping







Slowly the morning climbs towards the day.
As for the poem, not this poem but any
poem, do you feel its sting? Do you
feel its hope, its entrance to a community? Do
you feel its hand in your hand?

— Mary Oliver —
