I started writing this on Thursday night, I was inspired by the emotions of the day, from my life and by a lone flower I found on the ground on the way home
Once upon a time there lived a beautiful flower. She was delicate and exquisite perched high in her tree, radiant as she basked in the warm glow of the sun. One day for no reason that could be fathomed she began to feel different. As days past the strange sense grew and she began to feel less connected to the tree, no longer familiar. Each night as the sun would descend and the great moon rose to shine above she would remain awake scared of her rapidly changing feelings.

The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.

If we fix on the old, we get stuck. when we hang onto any form, we are in danger of putrefaction.
Hell is life drying up. The Hoarder, the one in us that want…

Without Earth we have no home, Without plants and animals we have no food, no energy, Without other humans we have no love, no connection, If we cannot live in accordance with these truths human life will diminish, starve and eventually cease.
