Never Alone

Amongst the trees
I watch I listen
The silence deep
At no time complete
The forest lives
It moves It breaths
When all seems tranquil
You hear the sounds
The shifting floor
The living grounds
Plants push up
Insects down
The longer I sit
The more profound
The bugs The plants
Life abound
Not alone
Peace at last
Solitude Found

Together We Stand ~ Version 2.0

The definition of “together we stand” has changed. The division amongst us is great. Stand with those who share your beliefs. Don’t believe that we must stand behind those we don’t believe in like sheep led to slaughter or we are told it is the right thing to do. Individuality and the coming together with those of similar beliefs is how I will continue to live my life. Your life, your choice. One life, one chance.

This sculpture of Forever Hooked is deceiving. The warm feeling of togetherness is in contrast with the 10 pounds of steel used in it’s creation. Intimacy does not need to be soft and fuzzy. It is the bond between two people created by their interactions, their successes and failures, their attributes and their flaws.
