the affection that the universe holds for you

Only your love can explain the devotion in the stars of your heart, in the solar system of your deepest joy. Open your arms and embrace the goodness of the human spirit. Open your eyes to see the affection that the universe holds for you, for your life.


Poet, why are you even here? To translate life into language. To capture moments like a child captures lightning bugs in a jar.


When confronted with darkness, walk straight in. The light isn't behind you, don't turn around, it's on the other side.


We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
