Humanity. Heidi Draley McFall.

I see it every day among my friends and family on social media.  Division.  Us vs. them.  Outright hatred. It is so disheartening to see such vitriol leveled against people we don’t even know.  It all seems so pointless.…

Commune. Kate Shaw.

Our time here in the Bay Area is getting short.  As of today, we have less than a month left in Marin County.  We’ve tried to take full advantage of the area’s beauties, but every time we venture out…

Branching. Ember Fairbairn.

A tree isn’t just its trunk.  To thrive, a tree needs healthy branches.  It needs to be reaching for light, nourished to its tips from within.  Those branches become the homes of birds and squirrels, providing subtle, swishing music…

Bound. Pava Wulfert.

Submersions. Kim Keever.

Re-entering the real world after so many hours, weeks, months spent by my mom’s side has been more of a struggle than I might have imagined.  There was, of course, a desire for a return to normality, to get…

Superfluity. Amanda Krantz.

If I could think of any one way to honor my mom’s memory in my life going forward– it could be summed up in one word. MORE. These paintings by Melbourne artist Amanda Krantz teem with color, movement, and life,…

Surfaces. Mila Libman.

We have a tendency to make snap judgements, to see in monochromes.  You believe “A”, so you must be “B”.  We quickly demonize and categorize without knowing the full story. In her monochromatic pastel and ink drawings, artist Mila Libman finishes…

Crevices. Sean Newport.

As humans, none of us are one dimensional.  We are a mashed up conglomerate of peaks and valleys, opposing polarities that often don’t make sense.  It is when we reach below the surface, into the crevices where the true…
