The dam will break...

The pressure behind the dam is increasing--words and thoughts and paintings whipped by emotions. Whitecaps are not over the top, yet, but they're close. Books--many pages to March--poetry, travels, crises, teaching, spring, the first daffodil, and now, Equinox coming up... two years from Chaco as the sun slides northward, and you can see time in the cliffs. Soon...the dam will break....
