Though I Walk Through the Valley


Cocooned within my body, I search to know freedom.

Then, following divine instinct, I change course, feeling assurance with each step.


Yoga class begins at 6:00 PM.

Our instructor enters the room. He sits quietly removing his stunningly white socks.

Prayerful meditation begins.


Captivated, my spirit begins to soar.


From moth to butterfly bold colors emerge.

Rebirth of soul.

Mind, Will, Emotions.


“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I fear no evil: For thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me. “
