A Write-up by Humphery Adun 2018 ©
Humans are relational beings; and thus, we owe our existence to the ability to cultivate relationships that sustain our mental, physical, emotional and psychological tranquility. In every relationship, there are roles played by each correspondence, and these roles are defined by several factors; age, position, class, family, culture, spirituality, and tradition.

Cradle your own face with your own words. Continue reading Words

Chris tries to use poetry to give a voice to the ones whose voices have been lost or taken away from them. He is currently working on a series of songs that species under severe threat of extinction might sing – if we had ears to listen to them. Blue Whale is one of them. Continue reading Blue Whale

This morning it felt as though I woke up into twilight.
At some point, twilight became dawn, and dawn was no where to be found.
Birthdays are a blessing.
For they point us towards realizing those ones we adore.
They make us stop in time to appreciate the wonders of being created for a purpose.
For at one moment God said let there be Sandy, and then there was.
Happy birthday to me! I am growing cooler! 😉
