trees

Where the trees are more important than the sidewalks.
Look what a tree can do in a lifetime.
There is something inside all of us that tells us we are empty, infinitely alone. Who wouldn’t want to relate to that effect with drugs and alcohol. The eternal that we can’t control, that there isn’t a remedy. Even our biology says so.

You must surrender, from the fall, from the attempt, surrender into that hole and accept the facing army of doubt. Along those lines of hopelessness lies. Hold like a shield, a sword and a compass the belief that nothing else can be. But Jesus.

There is a simple confidence with a heart in Jesus where the constant need to prove love is replaced with assurance that Love is alive.

I want to leave a legacy not that I am remembered but that I along with the individual entrepreneurs that make up Detroit, are starting during a time of the unknown, in this city, that all who continue to live know. During the false sense of security felt after the height of the recession and placed another and began as many had begun before. This space, where the culture of photography is embraced and grown.

    Do you read Henri Nouwen? Your writing sure reminds me of his.

  3. “There is a simple confidence with a heart in Jesus where the constant need to prove love is replaced with assurance that Love is alive.” So, so beautiful, so true, so encouraging. Thank you so much for writing. Your words never cease to bless me.
