Stone Tower

I look to the stars and imagine a time before science. I imagine their light shining from within, so pure that their beauty lights up the darkness. Their light reaches out, not built up or torn down by the act of living. They shine on everything and everyone – no matter what they receive from others. I think of myself and my children - and strive to be as real as the air, as bright as the sun; simply by being who we are.

I look at the river as it flows, like blood through veins – the water moves with the rhythm of life. I sit at its edge and submerge my legs. A force of nature moving in and around me, reminding me of the power of balance. I think of myself and my children – and strive for harmonious health. Not from the bandaids we have made, but from the water and resources that were put in place before we were even born.
