Still Locked Up In Lockdown

July 23, 2021 They all run together! I’m not talking about the deer in my forest. The days of the week and the numbers they carry with them. A herd of days. Or would it be a gaggle of moments?

The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 255

July 22, 2021 An odd shape of thought has fallen into my heart while making my way into the forest. So much of what I’m seeing is a memory. I’m a writer that claims to endlessly live in the present. It’s difficult on days like this. Being mindful of the present requires a reminder of how we got here. The flowering trees bring color and strong scent of spring. As hard as I’m trying to push away the heart must remain in the present. Lost in a memory. The white blossoms on the ancient apple...
