I’m ready to be inspired, she said & I said that’s not quite how it works, so instead we sat in the garden, breathing & watching the bees until she smiled quietly & said, I forget it’s that simple. – Inspiration – © 2014 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Dark Garden Prints (classic)

I once had a garden filled with flowers that grew only on dark thoughts but they need constant attention & one day I decided I had better things to do. Dark Gardens  © 2014 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Whole World

whole world StoryPeople print by Brian Andreas

Moms come in all shapes & sizes, but they’re pretty easy to recognize because they’re the ones who teach you stuff all the time about how to be in the world & sometimes that sounds a lot like: chew with your mouth closed, sit still. stand up straight, be polite, Look them in the eye. & sometimes it seems like that sort of thing doesn’t add up to a whole lot. Until the day you feel the soft ache of love in your heart that makes you take care with a friend who hurts or when you look in a stranger’s tired eyes & you stop & smile. Or when you listen to the ABC song for the thousandth time & you laugh & say ‘again’ & suddenly you understand that is the real thing moms do & it adds up to the whole world.  Whole World © 2014 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

Work in Progress

Valentine’s Day can be crassly commercial.

It can, if you so choose, be a reminder and celebration of the wonder of love apropos of which is this thought:

There are people who believe we stand alone, whole & complete & perhaps that’s true, but all I know is there are parts of me that would not be if they had not come alive with you….  – © 2014 Brian Andreas posted with permission.

I’m on my way to the future, he said & I said, But you’re just sitting there listening & he smiled & said, It’s harder than you’d think with all the noise everyone else is making. – ©2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.
