I find that poetry is in motion whenever I go to the beach. I see my struggles represented in the manner nature shows herself to me.

The view on the horizon represents the hope of a brighter tomorrow.
How you may or may not adhere to the rules of an 8:00 pm to 5:00 am (the following day) nation-wide curfew, is an indication of how you’d operate for the proverbial curfews in your life or in the lives of those whose lives you impact.

Life comes at you fast. You have to be flexible enough to find solutions to emerging problems. Just like clenched cheeks and squeezed big toes, you must be able to contract and relax accordingly.

Yes, we want the A-plus product but the ingredients have to be just right.
