Currie's Gratitude 14 July 2012

BE Bold. BE Strong. BE Tender. Ó2012 Currie Silver

BE Bold
Intrepid, audacious.
BE Strong
Sturdy, tough.
BE Tender
Kindhearted, gentle.
BE You.

When I wrote the 50 lines that I have been poeming the past 44 days, I was brainstorming and literally throwing thoughts out to myself. I never had a clue that I would take them and work with them, line-by-line, for the better part of two months’ Gratitude. Nor did I think of how else they have been working their way into making my art.

I suppose that is indicative of the WHY of this line. BEing Bold, Strong, and Tender are each and all together Very Important to me, to how I live, or intend to. Yesterday asked me to BE far more of all 3 than I thought I could BE. In fact, a returned phone call from my father compelled me to harmonise these 3. In the moment. In the face of a wave of feeling anything BUT…

I am grateful for how I struggle to BE. For BEing someone who dances on the head of a pin on pretty much a daily basis when it comes to Love and Relationship. I am especially grateful for my capacity for tenderness with myself, for BEing the one person I can count on. Always…

I love you, Currie
