Are you waiting for someone to give you permission to do the things you were put on this earth to do?
Maybe the reason
and build things
is not merely to inspire,
but to give permission
(to ourselves and others)
to see the unseen,
to feel the unfelt,
and to say the unsaid.
Because that's where our doubts, fears, pain and loss meet,
and need to be met.
I can't speak for you,
but what I really want
as a writer,
is permission to do
what I know needs to be done...no matter what.
What I'm learning is that Jerry Garcia was right:
"Somebody has to do something,
and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us."
Funny the word "mission" hides in there:
What about you?
Why do you do the things you do?
What are you really chasing?
You have my persmission to speak up!
