the thing about work

I gave a speech last week about some new ideas.

right after, I needed a drink

and a reality check.

this is what a lot of powerful people do.

and then nothing ever happens

except shaking hands

and publicity.

this is my reminder

that movements first and foremost

come from the ocean and the depths

of the universe;

they were never started by any of us.

so whether this becomes a regular thing or not

good work, actual work, remains the foundation

and never the priority.

and speaking things into existence

needs perspective

and humility.
