life promises us nothing, 

not the length of our stay

nor the complexity of our path.

life promises us nothing


that there will be opportunity to learn everything we need to know.


count on it.

but count also upon joy.

joy - mjd 2013

and if 

you stay open

and if 

you grow still,

and if you 

can strip away everything you thought was important,

you will be left with the love

you began with.

your open heart was earned with bravery,

and persistence

and tears.

awaken - mjd 2013

now that you walk the world

with an inner smile

you can do what we were meant to do -

share it.

share your story

share your smile

share your love.

there is an unknowable future

that you can touch.

how you touch it 

is up to you.
