I've been catching up...

It's seem like an eternity since I visited this thing. Life has been going crazy. All good...but almost too much good for one guy to experience. Sometime I just get lost in wonderful opportunities. I need to ration out my energy better...

Anyways...this is just something that I was thinking about recently...thought I'd throw it on here to get this ball rolling again....

wow, i love your lists of opposites...

"He must become Beautiful, I must become Ugly."

"He must become the Spotlight, I must become the Shadow."

"He must become Praised, I must become Persecuted."

"He must become Famous, I must become Common."

you know, these statements aren't a burden, they're such a source of peace and relief... it takes all the weight off my shoulders to know that i can't and don't need to become beautiful/famous/praised... that's not my job... my job is to become transparent...

He must become the sunlight, I must become the window.

"And You become clear / As I disappear"
