Foundations

Rock solid,
biding time,
fixated on
a future
born of
movement.

Frozen –
iced snapshots
of possibility,
immobilized by
misperceptions

Role-playing
expectations
carved from
generations
of staging.

One falters
all tumble,
lives shatter,
sink, lies
bottom out

sediment
disintegrates,
settles –
strength emerges
resurrecting

rock by rock,
precarious at first,
then gradually
re-building,
balance restored.

  1. one falters all tumble, that described this photo situation perfectly, like most organisations built on flimsy ideologies and shaky principles. really liked this one V.J – it can be read generally or applied to very specific circumstances
