A little reflection of who I am.
I believe in cause and effect. I believe
in the arrow of time; I believe in the answers
math and science offer us. I believe science
does not have all of the answers; especially
in matters of culture and consciousness. I believe in
love, sanctifying grace, and that there isn’t
much difference between
the two. I believe in forgiveness and
reconciliation. I believe in hearty appetites
and a good glass of wine. I believe in
winter sunrises and summer sunsets.
I believe I’ll have another cup of coffee
with vanilla chai spice. I believe in
international flavors. I believe my guardian angel
was taking a bath when I got in trouble;
trying to decide between the lavender
or chamomile bath salts. Flipping her blonde curls
to one side and looking up with
sparrow eyes, surprised. I believe
I felt my mother’s pain when she died;
like someone pulling on an organ
inside of me. I believe in prayer. I believe God
may be a woman; or a gay man.
I believe music can heal and
hurt. I believe music is a form of prayer.
I believe time heals some things;
but not all things. I believe in the collective
unconscious and the collective conscience.
I believe an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure; a stitch in time saves nine;
a penny saved is just a penny. I believe a penny
spent is a piece of gum. I believe in
Santa Claus, but not the Easter Bunny.
I believe every time a bell rings, an angel
gets her wings.
I believe the tooth fairy missed
a lot of teeth. I believe when push comes to shove
you should shake hands and that a
handshake seals the deal. I believe in
kindness, honor, and respect. I believe in freedom,
free will and free pie; free trial offers and
letting freedom ring. I believe love is
hard to find; love makes the world go
‘round; all you need is love; love bears
all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
endures all things. I believe love never ends.
