Metal Tree
This is my favorite sculpture at the Donald J Sculpture Park. There are a lot of cool sculptures you can see for free HERE, just outside of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Missouri, but you can also go inside for free!
This is one of the more famous sculptures in the Donald J Hall Sculpture Park, just outside of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, in Missouri. Go HERE to see more of the sculptures!
This is a combination of the chalk pastel portrait, I recently drew of the person I'm seeing, and the poem I wrote for her, and a couple things that relate to the poem.
Gouda is a nickname I gave her a while ago, and I'm not 100% sure why I did, but the quartz and other rocks pictured are things her and her son found when they visited me, and I cleaned them up for her before bringing them to her. And then that's an "eternity rose", which is a preserved rose which can last up to a year, in her favorite color.
I presented the picture/poem to her as I drove to breakfast for us, let her read it and explained each section to her, as I revealed the rocks and the rose as well.
She gave me a hug while I was driving, so I think she liked it, and hopefully she knows me a little better after that.
Just one
Soul can touch me
From a distance
I'd walk, if I have to
To reconnect again.
That's all I want.

Just one
Mind can get me
Some place new
Get lost, if I have to
To gain a memory.
That's all I need.

Just one
Laugh can move me
Back to my place
Close doors, if I have to
To gain comfort.
That's all I give.

Just one
Face can see me
On the other pillow
Use yours, if I have to
Then switch back too.
That's alright with me.

Just one
Back can feel me
Pressed against and held close
Let go, if I have to
Just so we can sleep.
Wake, and rub me with your feet.

Just one
Phrase can heal me
Whether night or morning
I'll wait, if I have to
Just to see your smile.
One that shows your teeth.

Just one
Rose can remind you
Wherever it may find you
I spoil, because I want to.
I spoil, because I want you
To know that you're enough.
A poem I wrote recently (October 2017) about someone I've been seeing, so that I could tell her a little about myself and what I thought of her.
We're nothing official yet, and we don't live close to each other, but she's my focus for now, and we'll see how things go. 
She did inspire the first poem I've wrriten and kept in about 8 years, so maybe that's a step in the right direction.

I'm just one drop in a pond full of people, but I can make ripples that span the whole body of water...

Heya Ben, Just got done looking at your blog, sorry to read about your trip being cancelled. Seems to me that you will find a way to keep "going outside", and spreading you good good vibe. Keep it up 2013druid.

Hey dude, I ended up here after following your piece in the adcast. I wanted to say how cool I thought that was. You could have advertised your home page. You could have advertised one of your picks making weird faces at awesome locations. But you chose to advertise something important. And I think that's very awesome of you. Just wanted to say that.

Thanks, man! I appreciate that. Just trying to get the word out to as many people as possible so that, at the very least, I raised awareness about some important issues.
