Envoi


photo by Audrey Howitt




we push through,

feel the air whip,

veins an extension

of the need to be present

for just as long as we can.

  7. Ha...no, I don't mind, Audrey. I'm glad you saw the word and were inspired to use it. Being present isn't as easy as it sounds but I think it's worth it. Love this life lesson in an envoi.

  8. So easy to dream, but we need to stay rooted in the present as well, even if the air might be a little cold.

  13. Oh.. the adversity..
    oh the challenge
    of the first
    cold.. the
    frost the
    freezing..
    and truly
    most of what
    WE see around us
    in terms of tools
    is a result of
    that challenge
    of ice.. adaptation
    and change..
    skyscrapers
    fly on
    4 inch
    screens
    of iCE..
    and FiRE..:)
