More Strength

"Always remember,
there is more strength in you than
you ever realized or imagined.
Nothing can keep you down
if you are determined
to get on top of things
and stay there."
~ Norman Vincent Peale

Kayla and Tony are married and happy and I am back in Birmingham, Alabama. Always the spirit of a sunrise to inspire: Ready, set, go.

Grief Isn't

"Grief isn’t all tears."
~ Patti Smith

Good morning, Sweet Grief
I feel you, like the Tradewinds
And the smell of the ocean.

I cannot change what happened.
But I can celebrate what was good.
And be grateful
for everything.

Fire For Fire

"Honest criticism means nothing; 
what one wants in unrestrained passion, 
fire for fire."
~ Henry Miller

Holy morning 
My New Year
Bold colors
Freedom Fire
Endless sky
New adventures
Unrestrained passion.

Through the worst times,
I've earned this clean slate

Now ask for it, make it:
the best year,
