love song

Palace of Fine Arts, Canon 300D

This poem was in Rob Brezsny’s newsletter today:

by Hafiz
translated by Daniel Ladinsky

I taste what you taste. I know the kind of lyrics your
Soul most likes. I know which sounds will become
Resplendent in your mind and bring such pleasure
Your feet will jump and whirl.
I have no use for divine patience — my lips are always
Burning and everywhere. I am running from every corner
Of this world and sky wanting to kiss you.
I am rioting at your door;
I am spinning in midair like golden falling leaves
Trying to win your glance.
I am sweetly rolling against your walls and shores
All night, even though you are asleep. I am singing from
The mouths of animals and birds. . . to let
you know the Beautiful Truth.

Also, a new issue of Blue Eyes Magazine.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    hi andrea — i was listening to the indigo girls’ new cd today (all that we let in) and heard something on one of the tracks that made me think of you — “you may not see it when it’s sticking to your skin, but we’re better off for all that we let in.” i know this little bit of song lyric probably doesn’t comfort you much — but hopefully the fact that you are in my thoughts and prayers every day will, if only a teeny tiny bit. many hugs, jenn
