bird in hand series

through the cracks in time,
we dream of tomorrow,
and yesterday fades away,
Now is calling.

we are strong, we are fragile,
we live, we fly.
And one day...

but until that day,
I love my friends,
and my furry walking companion,

I am Now

I with Frank - that tree is amazing. If you go back this winter, get the whole of it. Is very cool with the gulls swarming under.
