Whose life has a straight story?

It’s up, down, sideways, sometimes stripped of all sense,

A puzzle floating in mid-air.

Life is life, so even with magical thinking you will be thrown about.

Just keep showing up and lean into the road that appears, and

Find a way to worship the bends and curves.

Like an iconic piece of art

Without judgment or disappointment

Crooked or not, your life is still a masterpiece.

Banish soul-crippling expectations and attachments

Life unfolds as it should.

Laugh when you can

Stay nimble

Plan upside down

Forge hope, and most of all

Be kind to your mysteries.
