Ripples

Ripples of hope

Ripples of hope moving across bodies of water & land. Ripples of hope lapping against bodies, real bodies. Small thoughts that give birth to big ideas. Single words that build sentences of justice.

it’s in an instant

I’ve got this day but it’s slipping right on through my slippery fingers. It was here, it was here a moment ago when I woke. If I live to 75 I will sleep 23 of them in a silent state. That’s life as I know it, I’ve already got 23 of them under my belt. […]
