No form of basil tastes good to me, nor does coconut.
Both are simply unappealing, in my humble opinion. Given this fact, Thai food has also held little appeal with its heavy reliance on coconut milk and frequent use of Thai Basil.
I have been
Beaten, not broken
Belittled, not diminished
Bullied, not silenced
Betrayed, not resentful
Back-stabbed, not ruined.
Just in Case...
Just in case you didn't know it,
Just in case nobody has said it,
You are incredible!
You are uniquely created to be the best you possible.
Poem 1: Is it Wrong or Right?
Is it wrong?
Dreaming, not acting;
Wanting, not reaching;
Seeing, not solving;
Watching, not participating?
I hear it often and do not know where it comes from, “You don’t know what you don’t know.”
For most of my life I have not been humble enough to acknowledge I didn’t have all the answers, or know enough to resolve, solve, or fix something. This leads to a propensity to put forth platitudes or convenient “solutions” for others (thinking that I know best).
My throat is dry, hand trembling.
Heart is racing, I want to run, run far away.
It has been decades, but I still feel small.
