The Fourth of July

In spite of this being one of the difficult years in the history of our nation, this is still my homeland. And we still enjoy tremendous freedoms!

Happy Fourth of July!

And Now Our Skies are Free

Oceans 641

My Love, even though we were never taught to leave our windows open,

our love broke the dark clouds that hung like medallions 

around our necks, and now our skies are free

to truly reveal the beauty of our world,

and to see all the hearts called

to fill our world, with love.
