falling.

Standard

forsythia bright in my quarantine kitchen

 blossoms have begun to fall

everything is temporary.

 

“Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.” – pema chodron

who’s the boss?

Standard

I find it simply impossible

to sit through

one single episode of

‘undercover boss’

without tears rolling down my face

or to watch 

one rerun of

‘the office’

without laughing out loud. 

my daughters have said

that most of my own stories

end with me

either crying or laughing.

apparently 

my heart is the real boss of me. 

 

“Sometimes you have to take a break from being the kind of boss

that’s always trying to teach people things.

Sometimes you just have to be the boss of dancing.”

(Season 2, Episode 11) The Office – Michael Scott (Steve Carrell)
