how does one measure

how does one measure the value of a life?
by age, by gender, or the looks of one's wife?
by possessions, by titles, by address and name
by articles of clothing, by degree of fame?
by being born into one species, instead of another?
none of these things matter in the eyes of
the earth mother
equal are all that breathe and exist
by the creator, they have all
been blessed and by him, have been kissed♥

About Me

My photo
greetings! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
