Reaching out.


DSCI0056

So many of my friends have passed away from this earth. I have written five farewells this year alone.  I have overcome quite a few difficulties the past 3 years. Two of those being substance abuse & co-dependency.  I took this photo in Wasco, County OR. It is symbolic is several ways. Mt Hood in the back-round for the mountains of hardships I have overcome and the rusty barbwire as the rusty cage I have finally broken out of.

I’m thinking of reaching out to a friend who left me behind. I don’t blame her as she just does not know any better. I could choose to be bitter or be afraid to help. However that is not how I am. I know she wants to be free, so I will help. The deal is I don’t have any expectations. I love her unconditionally and this requires no expectations. Yes, their are boundaries however, I won’t allow myself to be abused or used. This is the difference. Just as in life guarding if you don’t have the rescue skills, you cannot save the victim. I have the skills now.

 

Recently my good buddy left this world. He taught me Japanese and we had allot of good times together skateboarding and surfing from California to Hawaii to Japan. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so try to be happy today.

 

Do your best to help others and pursue your passion is my advice to you, friend.

ou wired me awake,
And hit me with a hand of broken nails.
You tied my lead and pulled my chain,
To watch my blood begin to boil.

But I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.
I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.

Too cold to start a fire,
I’m burning diesel, burning dinosaur bones.
I’ll take the river down to still water,
And ride a pack of dogs.

I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.
I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.

When the forest burns along the road,
Like God’s eyes in my headlights.
When the dogs are lookin’ for their bones,
And it’s rainin’ icepicks on your steel shore,

I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run.
I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.

I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.
I’m gonna break,
I’m gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.-J Cash
