about innocence.

in a world that is so full of noise,
in a world where so many shout how great they are
in a world where people battle to be seen and heard

it is those who through the quiet of their innocence 
that touch me so deeply.
there is a peace and tranquility in the way they walk
in the words they say
and in their very presence
that cuts through the noise of the bravado all around them

to me, this is the gift of The Mosaic
it took me 3 years to listen to its quiet
to hear the characters say to me
we do not want to say what you want us to say
we want you to write what we are telling you to say

and now looking back, i see why.
the voice of the ordinaries is so pure and sacred
they have no message to share
but every one of their stories opens me 
to messages i need to hear

and now every time i read The Mosaic 
i hear them sharing things with me
things my noise did not allow me to hear previously.

The Mosaic is a gift of innocence my heart gave to my heart
and if you are ready, i invite you 
to receive the gift i have been given
for it is not one, but ours.
