(art by the lovely Jen Lemen)

I hide because I just don't know who I'll be when I come out.
I don't fit into any of the boxes you think I do.
And what's with all the boxes these days, anyway?
I'm noticing that compassion doesn't seem to fit in a box.
At least not any of the boxes currently on the market.
Its kinda changing me.
With so many ways to be
And so many ideas
In my head.
How can I choose just one?
I want to write everything
Tell you everything
But I can't.
I am
So much
And less
Than you expect.
So which is it?
I'm tucked into my cocoon.

No choosing. No need. You are more and less and even something other than those.

Just beautiful.

And yes, I think maybe Mondo Beyondo - August??
