Faces I Have Seen

These are pictures of faces I have seen during travels over the past few years. Some are in China, others in Kenya and some in Mexico.

They each have a story to tell if we look closely at their faces.


And the band plays on
I love this uniform
'This is taking much too long.'
‘This is taking much too long.’
Now What?
                 Now What?



I am Woman

I am Woman


Yes, I know I'm cute
                      Yes, I know I’m cute


Say What?
            Say What? I don’t think so.



I've seen too much
                    The world moves on…








I am Man



Careful and Intense
  Careful, Intense and Sadness


I am Man


A Mother's Love
                    A Mother’s Love

  1. To Be Human

    is to fall in love over and over,
    to never give up on any of them,
    to cry for the inhumanity, and try to
    overcome all that surrounds us by creating
    a closeness with those in proximity, both
    geographical and philosophical. It is to
    carry those loves in our heart, flooding our
    minds no matter how gone they are. And
    to put others’ needs first, understand their
    flaws, work on our own so we can be
    better helpers. It is to take it all in and
    follow our dreams no matter how preposterous;
    to pull apart another brown paper bag and
    to write it all out, no matter how choppy.
    So take my hand and make it all better
    before I repeat the painful parts until
    I can no longer act. To struggle past
    obstructions and obligations, self imposed and
    expected; to wallow in joy, build strength and
    change what we can for the better. To give.
