-Oh the weather outside is weather
But the fire is so fire
Sense we’ve got no place to place
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow-
DIY: messy french twist
The Four Agreements by Don Miquel Ruiz

Oh my friend. What kind words that I most definitely do not deserve.
I had coffee with a dear brother a few days ago. He asked me what the “point” of this blog was. It took me a while to answer, but I think I landed on a solid and sincere answer. My mission is to create a space that allows others to be themselves. Their broken, messy and complicated selves. We have created a society of folks who are afraid to feel and speak in honest words and phrases. Folks are scared to speak boldly and share stories genuinely. We don’t want to be different. It’s easy to shade ourselves into whatever color is most “appealing.” I’ve done it, and some days I still do. But I’ll tell you some truth: I don’t have my shit together. I don’t love like I want to. I avoid confrontation at all costs. I value the opinion of others far more than I should. And I don’t pretend that those statements aren’t true sometimes. But I am trying. Growing. Learning. Progressing.
My soul aches for us to be honest with one another. I don’t want fake friendships and plastic preachers. Life is too short, my friends. I’ll be honest if you are. Let’s keep sharing stories like family. Those are true Brother Stories. The kind of stories worth telling.
