go do, hold fast

let yourself be surprised, open to your surroundings, go do, hold fast
let yourself be surprised, open to your surroundings, go do, hold fast

  1. It was late, my pants all on the dryer. I was lounging around,  not wearing real clothes, reading a book. As if on cue, my Dad appears in the doorway and asks if I’d try a night beach bike ride.  
  2. Plenty of reasons to say no, but I wanted to say yes. When I think of saying yes,  I’m encouraging myself to say yes to me, to allow myself the things that I want and need.
  3. We squeaked across the low-tide sand, marking space + distance by the red fishing lights and the vague sense of proximity to the surf, both giggling and listening,  senses heightened. And I was reminded that despite the vast chasm of our differences there are rare places where we meet. For tonight, I’ll hold fast to that
