“Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don’t come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they’re having a piss.”
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. Maya Angelou
Happy Winter Solstice!
Many will sing and hold vigil tonight so that the Sun can sleep deep & long and then rise in the morning renewed, ready to begin a brand new day & year. In many traditions, tomorrow marks New Year’s Day in honor of Solar Time.
May this be a year of increasing peace, compassion for others and oneself, potable water & food for all and the building of a kinder inclusive world, not for profit but for love.
To your Joy and Life!
for sea & sight blue & white for sand so light prints are left till washed away legs will walk & hearts will talk till sea & we begin again
It's crazy how much I love this girl - if I'm a pirate, she's my mountain of gold and while sailing at night, my northern star yet when we dock, she's my Zanzibar.
(Joya picks up almost anything and turns it into a toy that she flips in the air, catches, chases, since everything is animate and joyful play in her world.)
I don’t know whether I’m more surprised that people leave fruit on the beach
or that crows and mammals haven’t eaten it before I walk past
or how beautiful it can be
or that it can blend in so well.
I love living here because Winter Solstice is the perfect day to dump jacket & boots
and barefoot it along the shore, whether playing
or willets interacting
even the western snowy plover
is enjoying this perfect day on Point Reyes‘ shore.
