questioning this thing too frequently named as authenticity

imagesThe most authentic thing you can do is keep showing up.

The most authentic thing you can do is remember waking up in your bedroom when you were ten, listening to the a bike whiz by on the street, hearing your father walk down the hallway.

The most authentic thing you can do is to rest a hand on your husband’s arm. Just that.

The most authentic thing you can do is eat peanut butter from the spoon while standing in your underwear in the kitchen, the dog on the sofa watching you out of a half-opened eye.

The most authentic thing you can do is to wave at your neighbor as she pulls her garbage can from the curb.

The most authentic thing you can do is draw your bath steaming hot, sink into the salty water, fill your lungs with breath, and then sight it out.

The most authentic thing you can is wipe the crumbs from the counter and wring the sponge.

The most authentic thing you can do is listen to the sure voiced flute that lives at your core rather than to anyone else.

The most authentic thing you can do is keep showing up.
