"I will take care of you,
the very best that I can
with all of the love
here in my heart,
and all of the strength in my hands..."

watching others, looking out at their percieved wonderment of their lives; watching them do things I do not understand, wondering what, if anything, I have in common with them. perhaps our most fundamental connection. they sing, they dance, they work out.

it is at these times that we need beauty most.

beauty is peaceful, private, and complete acceptance. it is a longing to experience, not own; a need to touch, yet not to overcome; it is the hope that things will not change, not the fear knowing that it may. beauty is what makes your soul smile, what lets you know that you are the only one who may percieve it as so.

beauty lets you watch a hearse in traffic. and pray.
Even though you may not know to whom.

beauty asks you to keep things.
