My informal-kind-of-spiritual-director told me this weekend I should pour out my love to more people: my students, my friends, etc. Less rational, fewer worries. There was an immediate click within me and that's what I hope will happen.
I used to hide in a party crowd
Bottled up inside
Feeling so left out
Standing in a corner wearing concrete shoes
With my frozen smile
And my lighted fuse
Now every time I start to feel like that
I roll out my heart like a welcome mat
