it takes a lot of courage
to go against the grain,
to refuse to do like everybody else
just because they told you so.
it’s brave to follow your heart
to stand strong in the storm of criticisms and hatred
from people who feel threatened by your independence.
but that’s how change happens.
change doesn’t happen by following the fools,
it’s clearly the opposite in fact.
Great Revolutionaries haven’t followed any rules,
but their own.
it only takes one individual to refuse to go with the herd,
to refuse self-deception
and the convenience of being safely tucked in,
for great things to happen.
instead she will explore other possibilities
other form of normalities…
pushing the limits, expanding, extending
reaching out for freedom.

the indian flutes have vanished,
as my CD player stopped.
and an angel just walked in my living room,
in the form of a completely white cat.
he walked in, had a quick sniff around
looked at me straight in the eyes
green eyes meeting green eyes,
as we both stood there,
suspended in a timeless moment.
zen, he walked out again.
It’s another good sign… then!
may all be good in the world!
