Playground Rules

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” –African Proverb 


We come in to each other’s worlds

With nothing but a soul

We slowly form thoughts, judgments, and opinions


We start believing our minds

And the stories that we ourselves create

We dance the steps that we one-by-one self-orchestrate

And all the while, take things so seriously


In this life, we have a host of characters

Some we care for and others we don’t

But all bring with them God-sent gifts


Keep judgments away because you have no idea another’s story-play

Just remember to keep your math simple: 1+1 = us

And 1-1 = none
