Revealed

Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, Rome

Something always seems uncovered no matter how hard you try to conceal it.

I’m here

Borgo Santo Spirito

Entering new territory is leaving a part of what you were behind.

Stability

Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere

They stayed against their rose colored walls and pronounced judgment.

But walls aren’t that stable.

Order

Vatican Museum

I went to my assigned place.

But then I decided to stop assigning myself there.

So this is what the beginning and ending of order feels like.

The Source

I didn’t think there was enough until I understood what the Source is.

Then I realized I wanted so little.

Fiercely held imaginations

Sometimes it’s a sacrifice to become something beyond what we can imagine.

Because we have to give up what have imagined.

Paths

San Teodoro

I’ve had thoughts about which is the better journey.
And sometimes, in the end, it didn’t matter.

I’ve had gnawing concern that I took the wrong journey.
And sometimes it didn’t matter.

I’ve put so much into validating a particular journey.
And that’s when it really didn’t matter.

Go Deep

Mary at San Teodoro

Sometimes you side-eye them, but you allow love to change you anyway.
