It hides you from the world and the world from you. You feel that everything has changed, and nothing is what it seemed to be.

The Laughing Heart

Phenomenal Woman

Somewhere I Have Never Travelled…

My favorite…

If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.

Desolate and lone

All night long on the lake

Where fog trails and mist creeps,

The whistle of a boat

Calls and cries unendingly,

Like some lost child

In tears and trouble

Hunting the harbor’s breast

And the harbor’s eyes.
