The Birds of the Zoo


back to school today, i'm thrilled.
enrolled in more art classes than usual,
listening to what my heart is telling me.
i spent the weekend creating,
location:palm springs
tahquitz canyon, 
where we met the loveliest couple.
palm canyon drive, 
where we laughed so hard it hurt.
so much has changed over the past 8 weeks
i'm thankful you're still here,
today is a very good day
