Looking Through Relationship

Ours is to co-exist with everything else, even with the insect in the room.

watching 0314There are times I escort bugs and insects to the world outside our windowpane. Perhaps, some return or it is a look-alike bug or insect. Nonetheless, I return them to the other side of the pane.

Theirs is a fragile world, terrifyingly transient, but still, life at full throttle. They meet the moment whether coming or going, going or coming….
