A Complex Legacy


This rise of incivility, hate mongering, and inhumane acts have settled in. It’s sowing itself into our fabric. I worry it’s a stain not easily removed.

a complex legacy

inhumane circumstances
normalized for too long

cotton fields
bloom with the DNA
of my ancestors

#Flower Of The Day -Heather

I was so drawn to this in the plant store that I actually read it’s label. It’s a heather. I’ve never seen it in person before. It was so striking. I bought one, we’ll see how good we are to each other:))
