I am a collector of Whys and Becauses - sometimes in poetry, sometimes in prose. I am compelled to find the bigger picture that moments
are pixels of. This world is a lens constantly shifting from high to low zoom
and the lessons are embedded therein; in moments with soft, medium,
hard, and razor edges. How I can't help but reach to touch them.
