MOTHER

I stare at the glorious mountain before me and seek out the words to describe her in true form. I am only human, much younger than she, just a seed in life’s spiraling cycle. And I don’t know if I can hold the wisdom she does, but I know it’s there, waiting to be touched. … More MOTHER

Shelter in Place

Staying Positive During Quarantine In high school, my global studies teacher would assign songs to his students.
