Sweet Darkness

The sun is creeping into my room and I have a freshly brewed cup of Stumptown to start the day. I'm feeling good. I came across this drawing this morning and was reminded of this precious poem.  A quote from this snuck it's way into my high school grad message (anything or anyone/that does not bring you alive/is too small for you).  I'm about to immerse in some long days on set so I'll be writing when I can.  I hope that Spring is settling into your skin and you can find the light in your own sweet darkness.

Sweet Darkness

When your eyes are tired the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own.

There you can be sure you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb tonight.

The night will give you a horizon further than you can see.

You must learn one thing. The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn

anything or anyone that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.
