Isaiah 40:31

The Point of Contact

nightstorm

 

There are times under a midnight sky we feel the breeze bring promise of rain. While the clouds still wait patiently on their horizon, the stars seem within reach overhead. The world is close, and all senses are filled with subtle and great wonders. Scents converge like no other …

Cognitive Dissonance

Mozart Dissonance

Damaged Goods
