I seek neither permission or forgiveness


A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep. – Vernon Howard
I didn’t ask permission. I don’t seek forgiveness. It’s just something I have to do.

There have been those seminal moments in my life when I couldn’t sleep, eat, or focus on anything other than that pulsing feeling that urged me to create something. It had to emerge from me & take whatever time necessary to come into being, or I would feel confused, sick, lost or empty. I’m so glad I listened & acted upon them, for it was in those moments that a change occurred in me. Usually a very big change. Altering. ┬áMoments of discovery of hidden information, artistic transformation with a new medium, cracking wide open with a partner who allows deepening intimacy and falling in love deeper than I ever thought possible, sitting up with a sick child who you simply have to watch breathe, bathing in the ocean under moonlight, creating a new business, walking the neighborhood streets at 3am in the rain…

…and you? Have you ever felt that? What was it? What did you discover?
