A penny for my thoughts, oh no I'll sell them for a dollar, they're worth so much more after I'm a goner and maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'.
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'
🎙🤒 When you're an OG it means you have an accountability and responsibility to the life that chose you and to the generations behind you to be a bench mark for them going forward. If you don't adhere to that you're not a gate keeper you're a dictator. The power to say no is as equally as powerful and em-powering as to say yes.
I'm not the one for titles. Hell, I didn't even give myself my name or what you know me by. I don't marvel in my accomplishments and I'm not focused on the results - I relish in the work. I only fear God and it's my fear in Him that stops me from lighting a match and burning down this bitch behind me when I go because he made Man to be greater then beast. The only thing separating us is a moral compass. If i die before my time I hope I have a legacy to leave behind that can benefit from the fruits of my labor.

Opening grocery in the morning can get a little meditative, matching products on orderly shelves again and again and again, and so, sometimes, I mediate.
Today, I heard a song by one of Susan's favorite bands, and, as I was missing her and remembering how she helped me identify an instrument I love in the song, I heard the lyrics "What I never did is done." What I never did is done. The finality of it almost took my breath away. The half-crossed off to-do list. The list of things to do this year, or next year, or before I turn 50, or before I die. When the time comes, all of our lists are emptied one way or another.
On the cusp of my hiatus (not from Insta, dear friends, not to worry), I'm thinking about my lists. My time. The time I feel like I should have left in my life and the time I may be given. Thinking about how often we give ourselves things to do so that we can cross them off a list (if you're like me, your first item is "write to-do list," amiright?). I have a lot of lists going right now; I know you do, too. Today, cross off a "What I never did is done" item. Do it without guilt or shame or regret. Do it because you are alive. ❤
"And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singing?
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin...
If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at down
Send me away with the words of a love song."
~The Band Perry, "If I Die Young"

이른 시간. 아무도 없다. 사진 속 인물 몇몇 만이 나를 쳐다보는 것 같다. 그들은 지금 세상에 없다.
누군가의 삶을 한 장에 담기란 어려울 것이다. 하지만 기억이란 예고편이나 스틸사진처럼 순간 순간으로 남는다. .
과거이자 현재. 눈을 맞추고 이야기를 들을 수 있도록 했으면 어땠을까 생각해본다. 오랜시간 누워있거나 앉아있던 사람들은 내려보지 않는다.
"이 세상에 얼마나 오래 있을지 모르니까, 그런 건 숨기면 안된다고 생각해요."
나는 아직 여기 있다.
"예전엔 가능했던 일들을 못할 수도 있을 것 같아요. 병이 온몸에 퍼졌고 전 불구가 될 거라는 사실을 받아들여야 하겠지요. 병실에서나마 일어나서 새로운 하루를 맞이하고, 햇살을 볼 수 있고, 우리 막내가 하굣길에 들르거나 전화하리라는걸 아는 것만으로도 충분히 축복받은 거예요. 이런 것들이 저를 버티게 해요." #아는것만으로도
