t.h.e. s.i.m.p.l.e. t.h.i.n.g.s...

the sound of silence
hearing 43 engines rev while
enjoying nascar race day














softly, my daughter giggles
i cradle her gently in my arms
mommy, i love you
perfection. we play with dolls
laugh til i need medical attention, then
eat more freshly baked goods from my oven














time spent with loved ones
holidays in tropical places
incense burning
nature reveal its beauty
giving thanks and praises to H.I.M., JAH Rastafari
sailing, into the summer breeze














*The Simple Things* is being hosted by the talented Empress Christina of Soul Aperture. Please visit Soul Aperture to enjoy more simple things.
