The harsh truth about tragedy. #nofilter

Tragedy is like cancer.
You don’t truly feel it unless it’s you or your family (which includes close friends).
I’m not saying we have no feelings.
I’m not saying we don’t have empathy.

I say and have said, 
Empathy is what makes us human, action is what makes us warriors.

Day 26, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - There are no accidents

Games of chance. Matching cards. People who come into your life. And when. The Uber driver Jose said, with his lovely El Salvadorian accent, "You know there are no accidents. We were supposed to meet".

Day 25, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - A Foamy Heart

Love is love is love is love. Love wins. Love is all you need. Love is like oxygen. Oh if it were that easy. Maybe sometimes it is. Or it should be.

Day 24, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - What I learned from Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, Los Angeles yesterday

What I learned from Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, Los Angeles yesterday. I am strong. I own my body. Every day. It's good to sweat, to bleed. I can let my shit go. Into the hit. I like, no I NEED the physical, the punch, the push, the grab. Give it over, give it up. Push it forward. Push through. Next, and again, again, again.

Day 23, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - Moonshadow Malibu

Moonshadow Malibu. New favorite haunt in Los Angeles. Swanky, old school lounge hanging over the sea. The perfect place to celebrate a good day with a friend. Even if he won't let you follow him on Instagram. His dog Oliver's more interesting anyway.
