What is happening to me happens to all fruits that grow ripe. It is the honey in my veins that makes my blood thicker, and my soul quieter.

to have a close knit family is a beautiful thing, but not at the expense of shunning out others who are not ‘your kind.’

love and family is not a hawaiian thing,

it’s a human thing.

that’s what we all share. our humanness. our non permanence on this planet. regardless of our background, where we came from, how we look, etc. 

at our essence we are the same. when will we realize that 





i read a quote today that said “Just when you need a Human Angel, one appears.” 

that keeps happening at every new turn, someone will cross my path and make it brighter. 

to all the unknown, unsung strangers who are making the world a beautiful place….

thank you.
