dried human tears (Smithsonianmag.com)
watching the january 6th capitol hill hearing
the most compelling, wrenching, and heartfelt testimony
i have ever witnessed
not one person immune from tears
i could not take my eyes off of them
and I am forever changed
questions must be answered and justice served
never to happen again.
“that’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt.” – john green
that moment when you rush in
because your are sure you have seen a king cobra
but realize it is only a weird stick.
“sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage.
just 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery.”
before he was an astronaut,
john glenn served as a military pilot during world war II and the korean war.
before leaving for combat missions, he always told his wife annie,
“i’m just going to the corner store to get a pack of gum.”
she always replied, “don’t be long.”
” the return makes one love the farewell. “
-alfred de musset
farewell john glenn, one of my heroes.

it was the perfect night
corn maze terror
9 of us went in
3 of us made it
all the way through
corn up to the sky
eerily waving us in
dark silo in the back
watching it all
so many terrifying things
all along the way
walking out of the corn
standing behind us
calling our names
scary pic of me hiding in the corn
right at the beginning – excited and scared both
we got lost
we ran more
we tried to
clutch onto each other
sometimes to strangers
yelled our lungs out
made it to the end
a little bit braver
for at least one of us
a lot more scared
than when we went in.
a true knight is fuller of bravery in the midst,
than in the beginning of danger.
– philip sidney
the opposite of bravery is not cowardice but conformity.
