Traveling at the Speed of Light

Updated: Jul 6


"Guides. Journey in the rays of the rising sun." by Vasil Woodland

When I look towards the light

of a lit candle,

or a star or planet at night;

I squint my eyes.

I can see beams of light

that go directly to me.

From the light comes the nite.

From the dark comes the day.

I am traveling

at the speed of light.

I am open.

Painting by Vasil Woodland "Guides. Journey in the rays of the rising sun."

Ukrainian Artist, Vasyl Woodland has given me permission to pair his art with my poetry and writings on my new website and FB Page. I hope you enjoy his work and are drawn to support him and his people however you can in your prayers.

PBS / Firing Line interviewed Lieve Schriber, a celebrated actor and descendent of Ukraine. They vetted the NPO BlueCheck and found there are no middlemen and 100% of the money goes directly to all the non-military needs behind the enemy lines. Please click here to make a donation to support Ukraine through BlueCheck.

Vasil studied under Norval Morrisseu. Norval Morrisseau CM RCA, also known as Copper Thunderbird, was an Indigenous Canadian artist from the Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek First Nation. He is widely regarded as the Grandfather of Contemporary Indigenous Art in Canada.

Pink Floyd - Breathe in the Air (Long Version) / The Great Gig in the Sky

This song is about an older man speaking to a baby, telling it to breathe. The old man then describes the unfortunate working life the baby will have to face: "Run, rabbit, run. Dig that hole, forget the sun." The song implies that we need to overcome these messages and do what inspires us.
