Creating Waves of Awareness
so much to be grateful for including our gift of sight.
This touching and beautifully directed short film about living in the dark, about blindness and injury will make you stop and think.

I must get out
Break through this curtain and veil and come out to the world of light out there

Just go on these years
RAIN uninterrupted sound that fills the audible environment
Could there be something like falling of rain in a room only inside, then the whole would take on dimension. This is an experience of beauty, Instead of isolated, cut off....
