I've scribbled the alphabet for meaning since I can remember.
You have to look for it, to see it.
You know, the butter in the back of the fridge, the rainbow in the sky, the good parking spot, and the subtle resonance of the life we are living: you have to look for it — often with your eyes closed.
I was recently complaining about there not being any good bands to go see.
“You’re not looking in the right places,” my friend said. He’s older so I had already expected he would agree with me and was quite shocked at his rebuke.
He did me a favor: I started looking, clicking and listening. Within a week we have three shows we are going to; some are super small and none of them are large, and I don’t know one of the bands, but I was more impressed at the reality that I was not looking for it — yet was complaining widely about it.
Here’s a new song I am enjoying.
Thinking of algebra, I rationalized if x = y then y = z
That is my invitation for you this full moon: look for it with new eyes and expect to see it. A good place I have been finding things is where I am happy. And when I am not happy, I have had to drum it up. Example? I sent out a text to a few girlfriends with some “I love you” kick ass compliments — and I felt great. I figured if I wasn’t smiling, make someone else. It worked.
I am not saying you are not already doing a good job; you are doing an excellent job.
I am not saying you need to do more; I am suggesting you do less.
I am saying instead of comparatively scrolling - spread a little love and see what grows.
Because why not? It took less time than watching a cat and dog play tag on youtube.
This full moon coming up is a dreamer, and these are tough times for dreamers, so hold those seeds close and water them when you can. Believe that it can be easy - and maybe it will. And maybe you will look down and see this:
It’s better to see love than not. I’m pretty sure about that.
Have a beauty-full day + catch up with me when you can; I’ve got some offerings brewing and have upcoming ones listed them below.
