32, Lost at Sea

sun-shining-near-dark-clouds-ocean

 

It’s hard to say
why
The beauty here
Does not thaw me out
I try new things
Pry open my mouth
Stutter words
But
I’m still frozen
I’m still pushing
On
Through bramble
and sapped pine
Listening to
the seachilled wind
Stood at the sound
Looking
For something
To live for
other
than others

About the Author

Posted by

Mother, feminist, environmentalist, lover of dogs, anthropologist, social scientist, hiker, friend, cohort, and lifetime student. Oh yeah, I am also a trained archaeologist. I strive to understand concepts in at least three different ways. Traveler. DogMom to Heidi and Henry, HumanMom to Robert and DogAuntie to a great big pibble named Doot and a naughty puppy named Luna. I hold a bachelor's degree in anthropology and a master's degree in the social sciences from California State University, San Bernardino. In my master's program, I graduated magna cum laude (with honors in my undergraduate program). My research interests include the formation of social movements organized against environmentally damaging projects. My research sites primarily involve the midwestern United States and the areas involved with the Keystone Pipeline, however I have extensively studied South American environmental politics, especially through Bolivia and Ecuador.
