i am thankful to feel alive enough and be privileged enough to have dreams, ideas and love to give. i am even thankful that i have no real concrete ways of how to make them happen; how to get the love out of me, how to get the ideas to appear like they are in my head or how these dreams are even possible. but i do know i have YOU, i do know that i NEED YOU. my friends, my family, and especially my God to lead, to provoke, to assure me to press on in my pursuit of living OUT LOUD. NOT hiding, NOT giving in to fear and NOT making excuses. thank you for the assurance you give me that you are here.
