Try a little...
A tender quality or condition, such as;
*Gentleness and affection.
*The quality of being succulent and easily chewed.
*Sensitivity to touch or palpation.
What would it be like to walk through the world feeling the quality of being 'easily chewed?'
How would I move then? How will I talk? How will I touch others? How will I touch cold metals on the subway train? How will I drive a car with tenderness? How will I cook? How will I type on my keyboard? How will I sleep? How will I dream? How will I work out with tenderness? How will I breathe with tenderness?
Only way I know how to answer those questions... is if I try a little tenderness. In a cold, sharp world... try a little tenderness. In tension, grip, or ego going overboard.... try a little tenderness. In a life so rushed to achieve and deliver... try a little tenderness.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
