We all have the same words at our disposal and it’s intriguing to see how we use them so differently-

It’s good for the heart, mind and soul-
If you don’t, these words will chase you-
As Emily Dickinson once wrote, ‘Your thoughts don’t have words every day’ and when they do, I think we ought to write them down-
I pray you’ll break the not-ok into pieces so the rest of you can be well.
Those of us
who fall for writing,
fall hard. And at times,
recklessly. I hope to
never lose the reckless.
I think the fractured peoples of this world have become the most intelligent, having created their own rules, inviting normalcy to be gone.
The worst of us judge rather than relate.
“Kindness is a form of intelligence very poorly understood.” -M. Taggart
A thought can be a mangled mess until we take time to straighten it out and truly understand it. -M. Taggart
“Why do we feel the weight of a fly, but ignore our needs?” -M. Taggart
An English teacher once told our entire High School class, “You need to know the rules of writing and grammar before you can break them.” Completely untrue. Be original. -M. Taggart
Our subconscious thirsts to be seen; let’s build a window. -M. Taggart
