Video: 28 December 2020 Slow Motion Wave Crash

Everybody around me seems to constantly be going, going, going. Looking at their phones. Talking non-stop with no pauses or thoughtful reflection. Working on and off the clock. Even sitting at the table or on the couch in the evening, television turned on the big screen and the little hand-held devices powered up… In The […]

Unprovoked Enmity

in the distance a voice thunders irate, inconsolable a thousand stones raining down high to low, gaining momentum a mother bear with suckling cubs cowers in her den a hare, its ears flat against its back, lays motionless in the thicket but for the twitch of its nose even the raven, with her blue-black feathers […]
