I live next to flowing water. Tannery Brook is a small and temperamental tributary that channels what most would consider an insignificant contribution into the Great Lakes watershed. All water arises from its source of greatness, the ocean.
I was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and grew up in Stratford, Connecticut. So one could argue that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, literally hit close to home for me. Two of my sisters still live in Connecticut. In July, my father died in Connecticut.
Excerpts from the book The Silence of the Mind by Ilie Cioara
In the whole Universe, there is nothing static, dead, or frozen. Everything, but absolutely everything, is in eternal movement. Even within the so-called still nature reigns the same intrinsic law of movement.
