This is a fact. There is life within the dust of loss. I cannot give up on hope, although the evidence is that commitment is impossible.Promises are hard work, but I am reconsidering my future with optimism. This image is revisited. I am still probing its relevance. This particular piece is oak. It is populated by three birds - each presented in different settings. One is skull-bound but looking out. Two are closer, one completely free to leave, the other snug within the wood void, but they seem drawn and held together.
This conversation is lovely but the meaning is incomplete.

We all know the party. Strolling and trolling for a conversation that is more than bird chatter.

A complete romp. Out of sorts and beyond control. The pure joy of days together.
Switzerland, Italy, Provincetown, New York. Skipping goofy and handholding.
