Why, as a society are we so attached to the idea of losing things? It seems like something we dwell on as a benchmark of life. Why is it that we focus on losing things as a rite of passage while the things we gain seem to go without notice majority of the time? We count the teeth we’ve lost, when we lost our virginities, family members we lost, sport matches we lost, weight we need to lose. How about we take time to remember the things we have gained in life- traveling to new places, meeting new people and learning new things (even if they do counteract that loss at times)
I went to church with my family tonight and the pastor said something that I think every Christian should hear
Pastor: Now, according to a few passages in the bible, homosexuality is a sin.
Couple of older males in the audience: Amen!
Pastor: Now, wait, I'm not finished.
Pastor: You know what else the bible defines as a sin? Divorce.
Pastor: There are countless passages that talk about how divorce is wrong, and that there are consequences to getting a divorce, such as the wife should be stoned.
Pastor: Yet, I witnessed a divorce just this morning. And I gotta tell you, it was heartbreaking, but I definitely didn't attempt to throw rocks at the wife, even though she was the one who filed for divorce.
Pastor: We choose to overlook the consequences of divorce because time has proven that they're inhumane and cruel.
Pastor: The bible doesn't say anything about the consequences of a homosexual lifestyle. Yet, we seem to be spearheading a campaign to ruin the lives of people we don't even know.
-the pastor shifts a few notes around-
Pastor: The bible states to love thy neighbor. That's it. There are no other rules or restrictions to that passage.
Pastor: So, we as a church family have to support equality with a smile on our face. THAT is the true Christian way.

of your tattoos and how long
they will stay with you
after I go."

"I love unmade beds. I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest in that moment. I love the look in people’s eyes when they realize they’re in love. I love the way people look when they first wake up and they’ve forgotten their surroundings. I love the gasp people take when their favorite character dies. I love when people close their eyes and drift to somewhere in the clouds. I fall in love with people and their honest moments all the time. I fall in love with their breakdowns and their smeared makeup and their daydreams. Honesty is just too beautiful to ever put into words."

I wish I was a stranger,
I wish we’d never met.
The shadow of a neighbor,
A mars black silhouette.
A figment of a vision,
Of washed out daffodils,
A dreamed hallucination,
A moment fate did kill.
I wish I hadn’t met you,
I wish we’d never spoke,
My body frozen…
