Need help making room for silence and slowing down life?
We regularly host a space for contemplative silence before our Sunday gatherings and other events (like Detoxifying Masculinity). Come "shush your dragon" with us.
Now four Sunday mornings a month during the 9-10am hour.
We're gathering this Sunday, June 23 at 3023 Randolph St NE, MPLS.
Makinig tayo kumakanta sila.. 😃😅
🎶Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me to another world🎶
Marunong din pala kumanta ang mga isda 🐟😍😅 hello chooseDay! ..

A very close friend messaged me today with the most lovely message about her daughter. It read:
“When I told her it was Father's Day she asked me what does Father's Day mean and I said something along the lines of it's a day you celebrate your dad and you love on your dad. She immediately says well what about Theo, isnt he going to be sad today...I lost it, my 3 year old asks me the hardest questions but it also amazed me that she thought about Theo!”
Reading that I was filled with so much joy but also so much sadness. Children are so wise and beautiful. They aren’t marred by the cynicism of the world, they innately want to be kind, and to love.
As Theo gets older we will find ways to celebrate Albert on these holidays that are wonderful but very difficult. We will create new memories and I will share stories of Albert. Possibly, someday we will have someone in our lives who will love us and become intertwined in our family tapestry. Someone who respects Albert and wants to know about him. Someone who isn’t afraid to open his heart and mind to the beauty of our past and the beauty of our future. Of course, no one will ever replace Albert, because he is Theos dad and my true love. But I know that Theo deserves to have someone to love him like only a father can. I see that now, as hard as it may be to admit that.
I know that I am enough to raise Theo. I am MORE than enough. We are two halves that make a whole that will conquer whatever challenges are put in front of us. Together we are unstoppable. We will grow and evolve from this grief journey we are on, and look at the world with our hearts open wide. Ready to receive whatever beautiful things are sent our way. I can already feel myself opening up, I can’t wait to see what Theo will be ready to receive in the coming years. My little hero, my wild child, my heart. 💗
of course it would be great
if we could make it through,
just as me and you
but sometimes a we
can change a me
so bad i can't look into a mirror ever again. .
if we could really stay
together even when away
but sometimes you sound
happier when I'm not around
so much i can't bring myself any closer. .
if we could intertwine
like ice in wine
but even ice does dissolve
and I can see us evolve
so far I don't even exist anymore. .
if we could just sublime
with your hand in mine
but I walk with a cane
and you win running games
so fast I'm hyperventilating still. .
of course, it wouldn't be great.
