i wrote this to a friend - i wanted to put it here too.

the more i talk to folks - the more i learn new ways of understanding
my life.

it's like fate - reaching out - and saying - 'see' this is what your confusion
is - this is the term - no more mystery -
move on - keep going -

it's really good.

my abscence - of knowledge is filled again -

and again - and it seems -

expansion FORTUNATELY will always be a part of life

as I hunker down to grow something - a life

for me - but also

as i grow and expand
with a partner along the way.
