a new experience

“The world fears a new experience more than it fears anything. Because a new experience displaces so many old experiences… The world doesn’t fear a new idea. Itcan pigeon-hole any idea.But it can’t pigeon-hole a real new experience.”

on the table,array of food
can hunger be
a new experience?


a tiny climb
to reach a bridge
pushing a bicycle


a child
crosses a river
a bridge covered with shadows



We ran to the river
flooded after the rain
full, swift, and dangerous.
We were young,gallant, naughty ,
and extravagant with laughter.

We knew when not to dare.

note:While browsing National Geographic online I came across an offer of a new book,
Life from Scratch, by Sasha Martin, to be released on March 3rd. Her story reminded me of my childhood.I requested Mrs. Abstract to order the book for me. The author has a youtube video to introducing the book.
