Today I Cried

20170121_102401Today I cried, not because I am hurt, because the world is.

Today I cried, not because I was denied, because my fellow humans were.

Today I cried, not because I do not have medical care, because others do not.

Today I cried, not because I did not have a choice, because once again females may not.

Today I cried, not because I can not marry, because others humans may not.

Today I cried, not because I do not understand what is at stake, because others do not.

Today I cried, not because I am unjust, because people in power are.

Today I cried, not because I do not protect the planet, because others do not.

Today I cried, not because I do not take responsibility, because the US President does.

Today I cried, because sometimes life is too much!

Who Am I? I am a thinker. observer. visualizer. listener. believer.photographer.teacher. life long learner. I am an advocate for my students, animals and our Earth. I am my man's girlfriend and my animal's human. I am a lover of food, music, dance, life, color, form, natural light, & moments. I never thought of myself as a writer-more of a journal writer of my own private thoughts-but definitely not a writer who shares her words with others. So now, I will attempt to be a blogger- the 21st century type of writer. I suppose maybe somewhere, underneath of what I am comfortable identifying with, I am a writer; a closet writer. So today I am coming out of my writer's closet to live out loud and unravel this tapestry we call life.
