Family Circle

Friday Poetically with Brian Miller

The Way I See It #8
Jonas Gerard's 
The wrong side where my kinfolk dwell,
Takes no notice of the damaged family circle,
It’s what we know, who we are,
It’s our heart.

What is poor,
What is rich,

Uptown where the bluebloods grow,
The buildings straight & new,
Maps lead the way to,
Places we don’t want to go.

Who wants to be on their,
Wrong side of the tracks,
Not Me
Not Them


"Fast spontaneous painting, rhythmic music exploding in the background. Energetic improv come to life."~Jonas Gerard
"Music gets me going with a willingness to take risks."~Jonas Gerard

"Learn to trust that everything happens for a reason. Give up results. Give up planning. Give up worry, and the big one, give up fear."~
Jonas Gerard
