"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

How to be a SuperHero

Someone the other day informed me how together I was. We've all had that right - The misinformed friend who offers a fantastic comment that cannot be anywhere near true. I mean can anyone out there truelly say they have it together? I will admit I do enjoy the fact that people might think I have it together. Why not, in this day and age, its the closest image one can have to a super hero. :0). (I just cracked myself up).

Anywho, I liked the was nice. Part is true...I do the work that it takes to present myself as together. I mean LOTS of work! And this kind of work is not a 40 hour a week gig either, its 24/7 and hard...but I digress. Instead of just listing all the things that are not together in me, I try to appreciate what is seen by the person. What looks together and why...and how the hell can I incorporate it to the rest of my life. But in the end, I don't have it together and that's just the way it is. I am okay with that too. I have to be, otherwise I negate the human side of myself...or at least that is what I tell myself. So for all those people who present as together and aren't always, I am listing 5 things on both side of the spectrum...just to remind myself we all live somewhere inbetween.

My Bill paying system
My music collection
My attitude on most days
My Eletronic library system
My patience

Most definitely NOT Together:
I'll just own it, relationships
My house
My ability to work out on a regular basis
Feeling vulnerable around other people
Letting myself not appear together

Balance. Good way to look at it.
