the cracks of reality and finds a home
in your dreams (more…)

where we sift through
how we have lived a year (more…)

And, if you are interested in the story behind an image, please ask. I’m happy to share stories with you. (more…)

I just drop to my knees
into the sand making myself stop
in the face of this beautiful roar
enjoying the relentless going of another day (more…)
