Daily Chore

I am looking out on the beautiful day

The weather is perfect. The sky such a solid blue, with no clouds. The green rolling hills with new spring flowers. Looking out to the Golden Gate Bridge. 

I know I am lucky. I know how beautiful everything is around me. My consciousness knows how wonderful everything is.

And all I can think is how happiness is such a chore.

Growing up doing musical theater I always gravitated towards the art world. I've been writing poetry my whole life but didn't know it.

Having a home filled with spirituality and Judaism have given me an outlook on life that wouldn’t have otherwise. My religion has given me strength, knowledge, and wisdom that helps me appreciate the sunshine each day and feel the emotions I put into my writing.
