I hate that word. I hate what it represents. 

I hate that there are limits. 

But there are.

In life

In my life

I am short

I will never be tall. 

Some people don’t walk on their own two feet

That’s not a metaphor.

Some people can’t hear music

Or speech

Or birds

Or tires screeching.


Some people hide

Because their minds won’t allow them peace.

Some suffer loss

They’ll never extricate from.

My son started junior high today. 

I write that.  And pause.  And read it again.  Is that possibly the whole blog post?

I started writing when that beautiful boy was a wee child with big blue eyes, wild strength and bravery, a mercurial mood, and the ability to rile me up like no other.  And of great note, he had the deepest soul.

And today he got up all by himself.  I showered while he got ready.  Yes, I still reminded him to brush his damn teeth, which thank God, are still in his freaking mouth-- even though I swear they’ve only been properly brushed twice since I let him take over that responsibility.

A lot of times we want the world to call out to us.  We search for meaning, for clues, for messages from…  God or psychics or friends or family or songs on the radio.  We want to know what this or that means.  We wonder who is the best for support, for love, for happiness, for strength, for meaning… 


I read blogs and apps and and might even be doing one or several of the things above.  And then. 


I sat still for a moment.  I put down my meditation app, my Pema Chodron book, my psychic cards from a fabulous new connection, my fervent prayer, my 2 hour conversation with a dear friend, my family’s generous love and time.

In a noisy world, how often do we continue to explain ourselves, defend ourselves, speak so loudly, when our truth is in the ability to just be. 


Stop.  Just Be.


I am tired of hearing words.  People speak.  Loved ones speak.  I speak.


There are narratives around me, around us, everywhere.


And they keep speaking.  The voices are so loud.  The pictures, the snippets of life.  The words that mean only that I was able to come up with something snappy.  And I posted.  I wrote.  I called.  I blogged.


I hear and hear and hear and see.  You and me both.

To the children who struggle with any type of disability. 

To anyone who has ever struggled with anything… 

Yes, to you.

And me.


If Someone Gave Me The Chance


If someone gave me the chance

If someone saw me better than I can

If they were able to help me learn

Because I know I can…


If someone were able to give me a chance
