Calling From Inside

I’ve got the love of a Hoochie Koochie woman—
She calling from inside.
She’s a-calling from inside
Trying to get to you.

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes

In my madness
I see your face in mine
I keep a photograph
It burns my wall with time
An Occasional Dream
Of mine

I Need To Change

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”  ― Steve Jobs

Do Your Life

“Nobody’s going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether you’re rich or poor, out of money or raking it in, the beneficiary of ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. And you have to do it no matter what is true. No matter what is hard. No matter what unjust, sad, sucky things befall you. Self-pity is a dead-end road. You make the choice to drive down it. It’s up to you to decide to stay parked there or to turn around and drive out.”  

― Cheryl Strayed

Woman in Mirror

The Penitent Magdalen Artist: Georges de La Tour (French, Vic-sur-Seille 1593–1653 Lunéville) Date: ca. 1640 Medium: Oil on canvas

“The bathroom mirror has not budged.

The woman who lives there can tell the truth

From the stuff they say,

And looks me in the eye –

Says, “Do you prefer the easy way?

No? Well, OK then – don’t cry.”
