Feeling the cold squish of paint through your fingers; the tight caking on your rainbow-splattered arms; the laugh bursting from your belly.

Finger painting is freedom, is joy, is pleasure. Grateful you could remind me.

look at your feet

“When you wake up in the morning, called by God to be a self again, if you want to know who you are, watch your feet. Because where your feet take you, that is who you are.”

– Frederick Buechner, The Alphabet of Grace



“Hawaii is my happy place,” I said to no one, ever, at any time. The morning was too bright, too hot, and too lonely.

But the light’s beginning to change. Happiness, like a cockroach, has a way of creeping up on you.
