Sometimes I wish
I had to make money
because that would put the fire under my ass

to grab the puzzle pieces that float around in my brain.
I could sort them and join them into something
with straight edges
that is recognizable to someone else
so they could be at ease 
rather than trying to figure out what to say to me
other than “so, what do you do?”

Instead they could simply comment
“what a beautiful sky”

    The need to be a bread winner makes me utilize the creativity that I think you are writing about but sometimes I wish it were less dictated by needing to finance my life. I could soften and expand my edges. How could we find a happy medium between us? Thank you for lovely Sunday morning musings.
    I appreciate your courage.

      I absolutely love this sharing Tania. You are a human that understands and considers deeply so your words carry great weight. Thank you for not judging, but instead finding the words to create a dialogue. You have a gift with the way you weave your words and share you heart. I feel your words with everything I have. Thank you.

    We are both blessed.
    My life IS full of straight edges and no one asks “So, what do you do?” They know.
    The fire I have set under my ass is to let more puzzle pieces set free to float.
    I love that our life lines are destined to tangle.

      Thank you for understanding what I’ve written and for considering it from how it relates to you. Your insight is brilliant (and words very poetic) and I absolutely get this. And I get you. You are the queen of floating puzzle pieces, but you pull them out and set them afloat for others to enjoy.

    Just stumbled upon your beautiful work Tamara! I had no idea…I didn’t think it was possible to admire you any more, but there you go – mind blown! Each piece is so carefully crafted to say so much with just a few small words…love love love 💕
