The Hedgehog's Dilemma

"The hedgehog's dilemma, or sometimes the porcupine dilemma, is an analogy about the challenges of human intimacy. It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share their heat during cold weather. However, once accomplished, they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp quills. They must step away from one another. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur for reasons which they cannot avoid.

The hedgehog's dilemma suggests that despite goodwill, human intimacy cannot occur without substantial mutual harm, and what results is cautious behavior and weak relationships."

i've been thinking a lot about coincidences and the big role they play in life
coincidences have led me to
coincidences have led me away from

but the more i think about it
was it really coincidences
or something else

for a lack of a better explanation
i'll just leave it up to coincidence
i'm sure luck will want some of the glory
but for now
many small coincidences

I have to say that my favorite thing about the human race is our ability to hope. No matter how rough the storm nor how dark the hour there is always hope.

It doesn't matter how small the presence of hope exists once its spreads.
Like fire. Like beautiful fire flies. Hope flies.

You know those feelings you sometimes get. The feeling that something is about to happen....something big...something life changing. It starts at the pit of your stomach. Then the fear comes. Fear of change. You start to wonder if you're ready. If you have the strength, the courage to face this ....creature. You don't know when but you know soon....change will rear its not ugly but beautiful face. And with it a peace. The knowledge of knowing yes you can face this creature called change and it will be glorious.

little flakes

little flakes
gliding in the air
what are you
and where do you belong

who are you
and have you been here long

little flakes
how do you glow
and why are you so small

when did you fall away
and will you be long

little flakes
little flakes
you're little pieces of me!

little flakes
little flakes
i know why you glow
like tiny lite brites
dancing in the air

little flakes little flakes!
we were broken

little flakes little flakes
but now we glow
charged with hope

OH! little flakes little flakes
we are whole

little flakes little flakes
it doesn't matter if we belong

little flakes little flakes
we are who we are

and we are precious
little flakes
