720px-52706main_hstorion_lgsee it moving – Life!
moving through the ache of time
seeking that place
where identity isn’t worn on a sleeve,
where individuals challenge the tribe,
where beauty frees itself from convention,
where the chain of fear dissolves

    1. Jadi, I am always struck by your beautiful smile.

      Thank you for this honor. I’ll respond on my own blog, if you don’t mind. It will be a few weeks. Am in the middle of a move. Thank you again for the honor and for your understanding.

      Warmest regards,
      Jamie
