Ribbons of Hope

When I received the devastating news that my dear friend, Ed, had been killed I grabbed my camera and went for a walk back in our fields. In a daze and state of shock I tried to focus on the beauty around me and started to notice the dried up leaves of grasses looking like curls, waving in the afternoon breeze. In the process of shooting them they turned into ribbons of hope....

A GREAT NEED

Out
Of a great need
We are all holding hands
And climbing.
Not loving is a letting go.
Listen,
The terrain around here
Is
Far too
Dangerous
For That.

(Hafiz)
