The Algae Experiment

    (image)   (text) This is a land where only wild birds live. I strongly imagine you doing something big; the land holds itself. Maybe you should ask nature what she thinks about an image with your body? We have to invent a new language to communicate with other species. Can you please guide me? You don’t know which creature you become.   (sources ) – not particularly in…

Traveler lost and fine

It’s late. Where to go. Paralytic tendencies. Find signs. Make signs. Body knows. I am find. Really. Also see through tears. Enhanced.
