I always hated King of the Hill –
always felt tense in my gut when King,
sad when not,
and ostracized if I didn’t want to play.
That pattern has followed me through life.
But now, as a tired adult,
when I feel alone and powerless
atop whatever hill I’ve managed to climb,
I secretly long for anyone to join me.
Now, I’m ready to believe there’s more power
– Mark Nepo, Book of Awakening
Please climb on up the hill to join Bailey and me. We can all be Kings and Queens of the Hill together. Okay? Don’t worry. We’ll all fit, we’ll make it work.
