"I am on a journey... With my work, my explorations, and a few sad stories. I travel with a suitcase full of outrageous blessings. I am on a quest for truth, beauty, and quiet joy. I am an artist, a writer, an explorer."

Parallel Universe

Photo: Alice Karayiannis

(full poem here)

There is a sense that it’s endless — that
night, that space, that feeling of being
fast and free and warm and cold and
protected and near, that
it exists in some parallel universe, that
I could somehow reach out to it
again, the quiet intimacy of being
known for the first time while
being held against
a frigid night…
of knowing where I end, where
you begin.
