prayer for the first day of spring which happens to be a cold and rainy wednesday in which i am running late and also have a flat tire: may i take this heartbreak, this loneliness, this uncertainty, this worry, this fear and turn it into the most beautiful thing. may i let life season me, richer and deeper, make me essential. may i soften what is hard. may i turn it into art. may i become the most stunning art of all. please let me be the most miraculous art of all. thank you for this curious adventure. i like it here.
