"I am on a journey... With my work, my explorations, and a few sad stories. I travel with a suitcase full of outrageous blessings. I am on a quest for truth, beauty, and quiet joy. I am an artist, a writer, an explorer."

The Mist

Photo by Alice Karayiannis
(Listen to this while reading)

There is an eternal mist
So dense
It covers most of this town.

Part of it (One with it)
I'm hiding in it
Losing myself (Finding myself).

Wet and dark
In this quiet stillness
I find peace.

Strange how even in the mist
The beauty of Nature
Overwhelms.

Fadeaway

Just Nature

Timekeeper by Michael Brooks

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal. 
 ~ George Gordon Byron
