what is it, this thing I have created for myself?
other than a seemingly never ending smorgasbord
of opportunities for spiritual growth
right alongside other people
that just so happen to be
lovable kind seeking beautiful soulful intuitive charming funny silly spiritual seekers fearful trusting gentle thoughtful honest loyal fallible irritable irascible endearing committed grateful never-not-broken loving souls
I can do this, I have the support of all of you
I cannot fail, I will not be deterred, I will press on
for I am inspired by you, yes you, you, yes you…
If that is you, you already know it, for you are my tribe.
