‘And what happens to those that refuse

to move an inch? Some will always chose to exist

as is.’ Tossing a stone by his planted feet, she pointed

towards a dead tree and tried to explain, ‘the still forget

the purpose of breathing.They focus on what was

and live vicariously through yesterday.’

I hope you all have a beautiful and meaningful

start to a brand new year! Twenty sixteen has been a bumpy

ride and twenty seventeen can’t come soon enough. I might go live

on Instagram during the final hour of the night so I guess look out for

that. If I don’t see you, I’d like to thank all six thousand three hundred

of the people in the Eyes + Words community for keeping this place

so vibrant and unique. I love and respect you all and can’t wait

to see what we come up with in the new year ahead.

  5. Jaded thought breathed from drug addiction…

    Would it have happened without, we’ll never really know,
    unless… Too much information…

    Some breath power an wealth beyond, anybody’s imagination…

    All useless on a different world..

    kisses within a tormented dream…
