Did you know,

you can make an excuse out of sidewalk cracks?

I never stopped walking.

I wanted to treat the whole world like a delicacy,

like the houses with people inside would come out

and bury my story with theirs.

I thought progress was only meant to move forward.

I followed the same sidewalk for a whole year

until I quit watching for the cracks and uneven ground.

If you keep walking you can outrun your problems.

If you stop making eye contact,

eventually everyone will stop talking to you.

I'm learning to be wildly inappropriate, ridiculous, needy - and alive.

Thank you so much for all the support!
