“It takes a very long time to become young.” ― Pablo Picasso I recently took a weeklong trip to Colorado with my son, Gabriel. Needless to say, this was an adventure for both of us. He’s only 9 months wise, but I have to say he’s got the Gypsy blood like me. His first plane […]

Winter Rain

She’s like the wave that washes my skin. Come over the tide, over again. And like the wind that blows and has always been, Forever in motion- Always will win.   Win she may, but let me explain, She rides like the river, begging for rain. Little she knows I never feel pain, A horse […]

“The drab and stark outlines provided by our struggles provide the chance for us to fill in the spaces with beautiful color.” ~Jason Michael Glenn A return comes for us all.
