Gateway to Change

We are all connected.

Painting by my Aunty J | Scratchings for this piece — photos my own

You planted a seed long ago
Presence and smile with no ego

“None of my business what others’ think”
Wisdom in being, you gave me to drink
Buried but never forgotten
Distracted by the web I was caught in




We are living in the digital world, covered in the autonomous aspects & tracked motions of life. Yet, somehow we are losing some critical elements. Keyboards, touchpads, & speech-to-text are there, but we believe that handwritten words on paper is still meaningful to some poets.
