Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Garden oasis
Amidst a concrete desert
Controlling nature

Human nature has us trying to control our natural surroundings. We pave over nature and then go back and try to restore a small glimmer of nature, albeit controlled, in the middle of a concrete jungle. Here is an example of a beautiful community garden in the middle of Chicago.

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  9. Nature, bounded … yet unbound. Lovely trick-of-the-context-tail … and you could also have used this for the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Boundaries. 🙂
