Thank you to Linmarie
for these very beautiful words which she wrote after seeing Safe in the Branches:-

My skin is auburn
My eyes are autumn
My lips a taught brown frown
My fingers are branches of a tree
against my expression of being let down.

You never saw me when I stood right next to you
I walked on egg shells just to please you
You looked right through my soul, missed all I had to offer
I had no where else to go.

So the forest became my place to reflect, hide and be safe
I became one with nature, because she heard my song
She welcomed me, wrapped me in warmth
And told me ” It has been to long”.

Music fills me with wind and storms
The forest has become my new arms
Because you didn’t, I moved along
You should have listened, I am now strong.
