The Reason Why

Haul water, chop wood
after all truth is revealed
continue to serve
for this is where your strength lies
to lift up those of goodwill

First Things First




Come and share with us your inner song

Richard Steele

A hedgewitch, a speaker of difficult truths, still longing for intimacy, and seeking answers to mysteries. Trying hard to stop being sad.
