Paint me your story

This is a wonderful example of what I mean when I share this quote.

I’m sharing this everywhere. I believe this with every fiber. Yes, I continue to be an idealist.

‘If we could look into each other’s hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.’
~ Marvin J. Ashton

Tell me your story

Again

And again

Until I hear it

Just as you need to hear it

Paint me your story

In broad, sweeping strokes

With colors

Bold and sharp

Muted and dull

Distinctive and blurred

Paint me your story

In minute strokes

With colors

That refuse to cover up

The bits and pieces

That you want to hide

There is no shame

In telling me your story

Again

And again

As many times as it takes

Until I hear it

Just as you needto hear it

My ears are open

As is my heart

But my mouth is closed

Your story is safe

So paint me your story

And together

We will heal the brokenness

And maybe,

Just maybe

The world will also know

There is hope

Mouth Brothels

"Great restaurants are, of course, nothing but mouth-brothels. There is no point in going to them if one intends to keep one's belt buckled." ~Frederic Raphael
