About Art and Life Tonight
It is simple.
Just reflect back and forward at the same time.
Then make what is real, real again right now and forever.
The seeds sown are what are returned with a thank you for sharing,
or a slap back, back to what is said, seen, and heard.
There is an art to being alive.
Stay one hand in the fire and have the other up and ready to either
invite in or
push aside outside the door.
It's a shame, but otherwise,
we all die without ever knowing our
story about why, what is,
and the plan next time around
when there is only one fire burning.
