FRIDAY NIGHT

MOVING

The language of fresh cottons snaps into twisting curves testing the soul of sturdy fabrics streaming out with flag blown hysteria.   A small wooden pin secures without injury preventing the chaos from escaping into disfigurement on the ground.   Cotton favor merges under blue skies and easterly winds striking a beat as the earth … More MOVING

RISING ABOVE

The sudden transfer of stillness; the opening of morning. Flowers standby. Curtains hang around with anticipation. The air is pensive, waiting for change.

Changing the colors of our thoughts, the visions of what others fail to see in us, rearranging and redressing the expressions of our inner person, the cerebral compartments and storerooms where few candles light the way as we break through releasing that which is restricted without reason.   … More AMAZING WITH GRACE

REMEMBERING

What would family and friends say regarding your character, honesty or faithfulness? Is there something you’ve accomplished that would convince them to hold you in high esteem or just a shadow once removed? … More REMEMBERING
