Come out, come out wherever you are?

Come out, come out wherever you are?

quote, happinessA friend is someone who give your permission to be yourself. ~ Jim Morrison

I’m back in my hometown for a couple of weeks before I head off to Mexico.  Yesterday I had the opportunity to have coffee with a friend I haven’t seen in probably ten years.  She’d been one of the readers for my last book of poetry, Otherness.  She wanted to tell me that she felt the book, my poetry, had played some small piece in her healing process, that it reminded her she was not alone.  I was honored to have helped in any way, excited and flattered to know that the book had done, even in some small way, to do exactly what I hoped it would.  It’s what I wrote in the forward to the book.

The reason I’m writing about this today is because this meeting with my friend is a reminder that we all need to tell our own story, to offer positivity because you never know when speaking your truth might help someone on their own journey.  So come out, come out wherever you are and tell  your story.  Be yourself and proud of who you are and have a happy day my friend. ~ Rev Kane
