What spectacular snaring of the moment. Perfect imprints of frames, of sounds, of scents, and the incalculable recordings by our cells that we fail to consciously aggregate. How permanent the entrapment of time. Perfect preservation in cells, that which enters our eyes, ears and mind, by ways which we fully, have yet to understand. So […]

Before, after, and the movement between
We don’t actively notice the passing of time. By the time we chat away another few sentences in a dialogue, or read another page, or drive to the next red light, what was present is already past. By the time we reflect on on what we had just done, the sense of being present, is […]
On your feet!
Cats always land on their feet, right? Once upon a time, this misnomer may have been believed by the masses.

Don’t you find it unnerving to see the precipitous drops below each foot placement? Does fear grip you as inch your toes along the razor thin edge? What gain could you attain from climbing out […]
Peace In Pieces
The box is filled with possibility and hope. The picture and numbers on the lid, promise that the thousands of intricate little pieces, once joined, will reveal a striking image. Inside the box, the pieces, close together in a janky, jigsaw, jumble, are teeming with anticipation at their liberation, and reformation into a complete piece […]
Restraint is the great liberator Discipline the best educator, Self-control is the developer, and Patience, the enlightener.
Death is the only permanent change
Change is uncomfortable. Change forces us, or we allow to cause a sometimes minor, occasionally major, augmentation in us. We move forward after changes, with fresh new perspectives, new understandings, greater degrees of physical strength or endurance, altered grasps on particular emotional states, or even a sense that things are different, which, in those moments, […]
