The cut worm forgives a plow.Everyone's bald beneath their hair.No matter how dark, ,the hand always knows its way to the mouth.What is not ex-pressed is de-pressed.To hold nothing back in every breath is a spiritual practice.We survive and then....we die.Pain is often a sign something has to change.I looked a hundred times and all I saw was dust.The sun broke through
