About the artist
A quiet and mysterious roaming this morning.
Feeling content while also longing for the equally mysterious stranger that is hauntingly familiar tugging at my soul for more.
That faint whisper of heaven reminding me there is so much more than my eyes can see.
A promise land full of Milk and Honey that one day I will be.
Oh, how I long for that VISIONS OF HONEY!
