Dear Self…

Your heart is in love…and that’s okay. Don’t overreact or think too deeply for too long. It has been quite some time and you are feeling things you didn’t think you would feel ever again. Self, your heart does not pound or flutter…instead it subtly beats to the rhythm and tune of another’s existence; the sound of their footsteps and the melodious tone of their voice. You find yourself at ease and that scares you but it’s okay, I promise. You deserve to be whole and complete and immersed.

Self…you are falling hard and fast and for once, you’re not reaching for a safe zone. You’re not praying for a safety net. You are freefalling and it feels good.

"If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you."

"Not calling you babe anymore is like putting Krispy Kreme doughnuts in front of cops….and telling them they can’t have any!"
The most iconic “we just broke up” line I’ve ever heard….she deserved a medal for that one.

This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.
I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.

If any post on my blog gets really big, I hope it’s this one.

Interesting fact. The photographer of this photo was a high school student. He committed suicide after exams.
