Reason to Sing

Photo copyright Aji, 2016; all rights reserved.
A week into the summer season, and our world is hot and humid. At the moment, the air has cooled the slightest bit, thanks to a passing storm that delivered no more than a few sprinkles, but plenty of clouds and wind.

That alone is reason enough to sing.

Air Conditioning

For my part, I will sit here and breathe in the heavy wet air conditioning of the outdoors, while we all wait for the night rains.

But I will watch.

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a work to shape a wakened world. It's a pair of earrings in the form of the trees who mediate the space between earth and sky, and the dreams that sustain them through all seasons.

No Shortcuts

Photo copyright Aji, 2016; all rights reserved.
This is an old place, one haunted by unquiet spirits that preceded our own arrival — kin and clan, to be sure, our ancestors, some . . . but their lives fell victim to the same willfulness, the same headstrong and foolhardy behavior that has damned us all.

There are no shortcuts.

We, of all people, should know this.

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a work that embodies forces that we are able to perceive only when they appear in combination with other elements. It's also a reminder that we are able to survive, to stand strong and sure upon the earth, even at the center of the storm.

Standing Watch

Photo copyright Aji, 2016; all rights reserved.
It is the old way, the way of the spirits, from a time when we all had invisible protectors.

We are kin and clan after a manner of speaking. I am a strong spirit too, a fierce protector with powerful sight, and I am adept at making myself invisible.

And each morning, I am standing watch.
