I am a story chaser and collector - sometimes with poetry, sometimes not. I have always been compelled to see the bigger pictures that the micro-moments contain. This world is a lense constantly shifting from high to low zoom and the lessons are embedded therein; the things with soft, medium, hard, and razor edges. How we all can't help but touch them.
