heart of the beast


I told my family, as they frantically raced like squirrels searching for an available viewing spot amidst the sea of tatooed and pierced and sweaty men, braless and pierced and sweaty women, and sticky-fingered long-haired children, that the day was not about the "getting there." It was about the "being there."

It is not about the getting there.

It is about the being there.

And being there was glorious!

I am trying to embrace my life for what it is, not for what I want it to be! I'm trying to "be there" for every moment of my life.

On this particular day, "there" was the Mayday Parade hosted by The Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater

I want to live in a world that everyone sees the value of life and peace and joy and humanity, and sings it's praises in such a glorious way as the HOTB!
