Blame is an easy

coat to wear, it’s large pockets

empty promises

“The impulse to create begins – often terribly and fearfully – in a tunnel of silence. Every real poem is the breaking of existing silence, and the first question we might ask any poem is, What kind of voice is breaking silence, and what kind of silence is being broken?”      ~ Adrienne Rich

  1. ps – I did a video on Facebook yesterday on the election, and how we can elect in love and extend that compassion and empathy to everyone else, however they choose to vote. That they can still have preferences and cast their vote without holding judgment about how others do it. I love our acts of kindness!

  2. Oh Ali, I love this. What a beautiful invitation to let go of blame and open to a fresh start. Yes, they do matter!

    There’s such sweetness in your writing, at least in my experience inside. I really love how you take a stand for kindness and empathy. This is a sacred contribution for #ForgivingFridays, and I’m honored to share it this week! Thank you, Ali.

    Sending you blessings of love – and all of us in our forgiving process!
