when our art is taken

what to do when everything that makes us human-

art, music, creation-

is copied, stolen, created by non-human, non-living ai

what will we do?

when our very expression is being taken away from us

when one cannot enjoy a work of art for its humanness, has to ask if it was robot made.

what will we do?


keep on, making, singing, being human.

for that is the one thing that they can't take away.

they can take our art, music, ability to express, they can take our hearts, our minds, our lives. But they will never be able to take away our being.


and one day, our humanness will overwhelm them

for they can imitate

but can never be.

  • this summer

    this summer holds many adventures waiting:

    next week I leave this school behind

    the begining of an end

    ice cream and treats with friends
    playing with the neighborhood dogs

  • ocean cottage

    10 years i've spent here
    this cottage by the sea

    these 10 years i've spent here
    have become a part of me

    long i've stood on this shore
    the tides come in and out
    and so my heartbeat follows:
    in and out

  • Alone But Not Lonely

    A tundra desert stretches as far as the eye can see: 

    far away, one might glimpse 
    a wandering soul 

    a little fox, 
    fur white as the snow 
    eyes blue as the coldest mountain creek
