Pushme-Pullyu

i need to feel safe

that i won’t be left

you need to feel home

and know you’re not kept

The six foot distance helps me to see people in their totality. It is always an interaction with my “self” the push and pull of the pieces.

The Pushme-Pullyu is a two-headed fictional animal in the book, Dr. Dolittle. One head talks and the other head eats. How do we feed ourselves? Are our words fertile ground? Between the two heads lies the unified heart of integrity.
