Good morning, let’s dive in.

Reality is a bitch. A mean, heartbreaking, soul stealing, life ruining, bitch. And, and life is a beautiful, caring, nurturing, intoxicating, dream. There are horrible things that happen. There are people who commit horrible acts against innocent men, women, and children. There are people who are callous to the damage they commit against others. Their selfishness is that on the level of the lion that eats its prey alive despite the screams of pain. It pulls the guts from the soft underbelly indulging in getting its fill. Then there are people who would go without. They would starve, freeze, and toil away just to make sure others are taken care of. There are those that dedicate their lives to the lives of others. They are unsung heroes who give far more than they take. Their life is a light that lights others way through the darkness.

The living dead human heart is a fucked up mess. It doesn’t live in cooperation and collaboration with others. It is fueled by greed and lust, it is self deceived in declaring its innocence when guilty and blames others when judgment comes.

The genuine human heart is a warming fire. It burns to help others keep warm, it lights the way for other to safety, it heats others so they may too escape the coldness of the world, it does all this while providing the same for itself. It thrives and grows in cooperation and collaboration. As torches are lit from its flame it doesn’t reduce in size but expands its view of possibilities and love.

Guard yourself and your loved ones, life is short, humans are messy, and all we have is each other.
