Like a soul without radiance

As a heartbeat without rhythm

A violin absent of its bow

A visionary with hollow eyes
 
His dream apparently has died

Comparisons of contrast as

Brass resounding in the wind

Is a nuisance of its tone

Incongruity the equal of its sum

Resonance of harmony

Is of course an impossibility

As a conductor of a symphony

Directs with amputated arms

So is a society blinded by demise

Humanity is Saddened

Filling rivers with her cries

History repeats a babylonian fall

A Holocaust of America

Will be remembered in its majesty

Only as a “pop” on every Facebook wall

~Follow Your Dreams~

image

This photograph was talking on the Oregon Coast.  After a month visit with my children we headed home taking the scenic route hwy 101.

Our first stop was Newport Beach Oregon.  It was here that I stopped to reflect on what was truly important in my life. My dream of being with my family was all I could feel.
At this particular moment I decided to follow my dream and drift back home where my heart lives.
And my heart lives in Portland.

~Forever Young~

image

This set of photographs was shot on Mother’s Day this year in Portland Oregon.   My daughter, her pug and I were playing carelessly in the park, as I gazed over at the swing set and for just a moment, I could see my daughter swinging twenty-five years earlier. The reminiscent thought was and always will be cherished.
That’s why I named this set of photographs, “Forever Young.”
