Together

Standard

one voice
a thousand colors
come together

A wall of words, color, and voices. A place where people from all over the world converge to leave their mark, have their say, and be part of something bigger than themselves. While this is just a wall of splattered paint, there is something immensely powerful and human about this place. It stands as a reminder that we all matter and deserve to be heard.

Burst

Standard

raindrops
hold the world
and burst

Those moments right after there rain stops are among my favorite. There’s still that slight tapping of drops falling from where they landed in the trees and broken rays of sun as the clouds clear. Everything is new and clean and beautiful.
