Not only did a confrontation w/ uneven sidewalk throw Juan- my wheelchair-bound pedestrian cargo- overboard, but we actually busted his wheel… yeah, my good intentions often fall short of their goals, but inevitably make room for an alternative hero (local handyman, pictured!) to save the day… As a girl who grew up running the point (🏀) facilitating another’s chance to shine feels mostly natural, but I can’t help but wonder why I’m still (subconsciously?) handing off what should be layups? I mean, we were only going 3 blocks… Am I supposed to be satisfied w/ only getting the job halfway done before passing it on? #thestruggle #soitgoes #fromwhereirun #lifeofabun
"Awakening means coming to your senses - but of course, to do that, you have to go out of your mind."

a hooded beauty snuck a spray can from her purse and paused mid-stride to share her #hearts with the neighborhood, then walked away smirking with responsibility as gold flecks danced in the seas of her eyes and I stared into the waters, all #swoon. #morningview (at the EV)
"In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it."
Mitch Albom, Five People You Meet In Heaven
"Strength is genderless. It has no preference. It visits whoever calls it over and pays attention. Toughness is genderless. It does not specify. It rests wherever it is given a home. Capacity is not a given. One trains. One obtains. One is whoever."
"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not yours to determine how good it is; nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is ever pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others."
