Alison Azer 14 hrs · 2016: I cried enough tears to create a new body of water - one so salty that even a poor swimmer like me could float. Freely. Except I was not free. I was held captive by fears for my children and my fight for something, anything, different than this. Recently, I was floating in my sea of salty tears, looking up at the stars, yearning for a sign. A gentle breeze danced on the water creating a current around me. Ah - the proverbial current. The very one I've been fighting against for so long that my soul aches. The very one I could join with - her energy plus mine. To etch a new path - creating waves that are subtle, enticing, and just beyond that which from the surface we can sea.
