Father Time by Kendrick Lamar

I’ve been thoroughly immersed in the latest album. @kendricklamar you’ve raised the bar again. Thank you for being the consummate artist, a man of faith, and both a top-tier lyricist/storyteller. I appreciate you.

Carried with me

I come alongside you
as a bank to your river
nestled up against your vulnerability
though I’m the one trembling

anxiously chasing the horizon
burning the daylight left
the dogs and I (mainly me)
decided to snap you a bouquet
of wildflowers
unpicked and wild
like you
only you’re my first pick
every day
forever and a day
.

Love, Land, and Language

I was ecstatic to join for an evening of poetry and conversation between Pulitzer prize-winning poet Natalie Diaz and Nevada’s Poet Laureate Gailmarie Pahmeier.
Thank you to everyone involved for keeping me enthralled for the full hour. @ndinn It meant a lot to hold the body of your beautiful book in my hands and read alongside your voice. Thank you especially for sharing your voice this evening.
@nvlaureate You were enchanting as always.
A HUGE THANK YOU is due for the event which was produced by Nevada Humanities, the Humanities Center at Great Basin College, and the Nevada Arts Council with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts.

In Someone Else’s Dream

~ In someone else’s dream ~
.
When I cannot close my eyes and sleep, I wonder if I am awake in someone else’s dream. Only through the rich connection with others can I be truly conscious. Only through sacrifice of self am I remotely capable of gaining anything lasting, sacred, and permanent. These dreams that I wish I could be having presently are perhaps the foundation of another’s purpose. The sleep that I am missing could be the veritable framework for another’s destiny. The rest I so desperately need could be healing the bones of the one who will lead the uprising. The rigidity with which my mind refuses to stop is perhaps matched by knowing that somewhere, right now, at this very moment, there is one in a comatose state. That one will soon awake and arise, and love more deeply, teach more soundly, feel more extremely, and breathe more easily than I ever could have.
