More To That

An illustrated, long-form blog that delves deeper into the things that make us who we are.

The River of Compassion

pour salt into a cup of water

undrinkable water

pour salt into the river

people in a river

the river is immense and transformative

limited understanding and compassion

suffering with a small heart

us vs them

fighting each other demanding change

compassion and the heart expanding

running to embrace each other
