I ran across this wild turkey obviously out in the…wilderness. And there was just something so elegant about this turkey and the way it was moving. How the light was bouncing off the grass surrounding it, creating this green hue that was so soft and warm it seemed to be evaporating into the air. In the lush abandonment of its own freedom, for a moment, even this turkey was graceful.
It just got me thinking about how we’re all graceful—all beautiful in soft, quiet moments during the day when no one sees. No one sees. And isn’t it amazing that our world is brimming with beauty and that each of us in some way is contributing to it.
Today I’m thankful that there is such a thing as “wild” turkeys, who get to live through Thanksgiving and enjoy freedom.

If you’ve ever seen two jellyfish “swimming” together, you know that for them movement isn’t about rhythm. Their dance isn’t about keeping time; it’s about going with the flow. They have no need for choreography because they create time through their syncopated movement. They move together, fluidly opening and closing -- filling each others spaces in a beautiful liquid embrace. Jellyfish make being two feel like being one so effortlessly, so easily that they can’t help but belong together.
So here are two “soul mates” today, performing a dance that is always out of rhythm, but in time.

I began drinking coffee when I was six and coding when I was in junior high. In college, I wrote poetry and minored in design. Later, I went on to channel those passions into a career in high-tech marketing. When I decided to get a little more serious about writing, I left the corporate world to become a Professor of Literature.
Right about now I’m pretty certain of
one thing, which is that anything worth doing—marketing, design, or critical
analysis—depends upon the stories we tell.
Ultimately, I’m still reading and writing stories and teaching others how to do this as well. I’m hoping that you’ll share your story with me.
I mostly post on the following topics: photography, poetry, and literature. I like to pair my photos with poetry, often my own poems, but not always.
Rarely, on design, social media, technology
