Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path.

THEN, BE.: Goodmorning from Tokyo
Checked my email this morning,
to see your hello at 5:53AM.
Was about to hit reply
and greet you back from Tokyo,
but I hesitated, instead.
Mother was always right
in cases I never hoped she’d be—
I want my baby to travel,
I want you to see the world.
I’d roll my eyes in the passenger seat,
How real is love
when you can fall in love
I don’t (want to) understand.
