“Every Heart Matters”****
Stolen fragments bridge each step.
Stolen layers amble through briar, bramble, meadows, and flourishes.
Stolen glances create bounty, create strata of tough skin.
Stolen wishes reveal light then dark, dark then light.
A life is more than hope. A life is. A life does. A life never stills.
A life mirrors the entire universe. We are one and multitudes.
We are each other and yet ourselves.
We are mirrors through which survival depends and transcends.
Being attentive, watchful matters.
Those stolen fragments matter.
Being you matters, as everyone matters.
Every heart matters.

In the Lens section are two versions of a white azalea blossom, which expresses the flower’s inner heart, its spirit and soul. Macro allows me to get up close and personal with this one inch floret–a floret that reveals a tiny opening, which holds its inner workings. Its essence is out of focus, mysterious, and its heart’s desire spilling into view.
Tip of the Day:
Recently, the world-renown artist and activist Ai Weiwei (b. 1957, Beijing, China) authored an article that speaks to one of the most important topics of our time: censorship. “Ai Weiwei: How Censorship Works” can be found here in “The Stone column” published in The New York Times (06 May 2017).
