Success is not obtained overnight. It comes in installments; you get a little bit today, a little bit tomorrow until the whole package is given out. The day you procrastinate, you lose that day’s success.
Big thanks to Houston Spine and Neurosurgery Center for taking care of me. Clean bill of health and ready to get my self happy and healthy.
To my children: It pains me to know you’re hurting farther than my arms can reach, that I am unable to protect you with the entire span of the Pacific between us, that no number of emails or texts or FaceTime minutes can bandage the bruises she hammers into your skin.
There are days I think of you until the expression on my face is a postcard she will not let you read: I wish you were here, I wish you were here, I wish you were here.
I keep three clocks set to your timezone as reminders that my 2ams are your almost midays, that while the moon wanes in the sky you are under the sun someplace else feeding breadcrumbs to birds in a park wishing for wings of your own and I imagine that for a fraction of a moment, you’re not so afraid. Fly home to me.
Where the hands that hold you will tremble with passion not violence, where you will not be a possession but the universe I inhabit. Fly home to me.
The only advantage of always being truthful in everything you do is you’re never need to worry about the lies you tell…

Sometimes people with a real heart don’t listen to our stories as much as an inhuman soft toy does.
Take a sip of ambrosia and let the scars heal
