Catharsis Cascade

A  L  O  H  A !

"  The thing that is really hard,
 and really amazing,
 is giving up 
on being perfect
 and beginning the 
of becoming yourself. "

Anna Quindlen

" There is nothing like
 returning to a place
 that remains unchanged
 to find the ways
 in which you 
have altered. "

Nelson Mandela

"Butterfly Chasing Moon 
Through Silk Waves"

River roll on
Don't provocate
Just keep running
Catharsis will come.

Sooner or later
All that's left
Is the flavor
Of how You

Deescalate! Flow on!
O River
Looking for

life's storms always break.
We come out the other side
awed, and cleansed.

And should one be 
The One
that takes you?

WHAT away to go!

Celebrate, Friends
                          Fondly, cloudia
