vindication


everyone tries to vindicate themselves
searching for validation
proof that
they
are here...
proof of existence
of survival
of truth
and hair, teeth, bone, memory
density to a different degree...

this is where i am today.

searching for my own truth
my own proof
my reason for remaining
trying to fit my story
into the pieces and patterns of yours...

Love this. Love it. LOVE, love, love it!

I think that last line is a beautiful picture of a marriage.

It's Thanksgiving day and we are all piled up watching the parade. So, I have the perfect time to drop by and visit friends. I wanted to tell you that one the things I am thankful for today is blogging and the way it has made my world so much bigger. Thank you for the friendship, the wisdom, and the inspiration I have found here. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, my friend. Happy Thanksgiving!
