tunnel through nature
light to dark to light again
leads me to beauty.
“poetry is the tunnel at the end of the light.”

one september morning
i went to a place beyond dawn
s source of sweetness that flows
and is never less.
i have been shown
a beauty that would confuse both worlds.

by far my favorite ride
in our rolling sculpture car show

himalayan bazaar fair trade shop on main street
leave it to the sherpas
to come out strong and beautiful.

no students today
teachers get together to talk and play
to see how it feels for our kids
as we encourage them to experiment
to play with the process
rather than make a project
for the pure joy of creation
we try out materials
with no expected outcome
just for the chance to see what will happen
when we are finished
we share what we’ve made with each other
and as it happens
each one is a beauty in its own way.
“colours are brighter when the mind is open.”

“to love beauty is to see light.”
