EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY

"Here, there's no music here 
I'm lost in streams of sound 
Here, am I nowhere now? 
No plan 
 Wherever I may go 
Just where 
Just there 
I am 

 All of the things that are my life 
My desires, my beliefs, my moods 
Here is my place without a plan 

 All the things that are my life 
My my moods, my beliefs, my desires, me alone 
Nothing to regret 
This is no place, but here I am 
This is not quite yet" 

Excerpt quote from his song "No Plan"

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. 

The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; 
and thus we see magic and beauty in them, 
while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves. 

The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness. 
And knows that yesterday is but today's memory 
and tomorrow is today's dream."

Various excepts from his poems

"You know all women from birth to death 
We seek your knowledge 
We seek your strength 
Some are STARS up there with you 
Some are STARS on Mother Earth 
Grandmother, lighten our path in the dark 
Creator,  keep our sisters safe from harm 
Maa duu? Mussi cho." 
~ Kukdookaa Terri Brown (Tahltan Nation, Canada)
