importance..

As much as we like to believe we are, and have always been important, there exists a world, around every one of us that functions without us…. Better still, it doesn’t know we exist. Maybe it’s time we thought less about us and more around us…..

the ruins…..

They said it was ruins… They also said it was once a magnificent city.. They however, did not see life it contained within…….  

a bit beyond……

At times, it is rewarding to go a trifle bit beyond what the tour guide book says, even if its a few steps…

Hope… Courage… Life…

They said the place closed at 5! They said it got just too dark to be around thereafter. They said it was dangerous. They said it was the land’s end.  It sure seemed to be the land’s end. The canyon so vast and deep made a rumbling river sound no more than a meek trickle….

Her quest for the unseen and the unknown will take her far away;…
