I am a collector of Why's and Because's - sometimes in poetry, sometimes in prose. I am compelled to find the bigger picture that moments are pixels of. 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 I can't help but reach to touch them.
