John William Tuohy lives in Washington DC

Us and them

I work on having the will to allow those that I love be who and what they are and not try to twist and turn them into something that comes close to my own image and likeness. The reason I work on this aspect of my life is that I have learned that if we try to mold those we love into mini-versions of our self, reflections of us, we don’t really love the person rather we love, as Thomas Merton said  “Only their potential likeness to ourselves” which belittles and dehumanizes them and us.   

Dance happy and with grace and style because life is short!
