gift

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you accept a gift as something unexpected coming your way, like a photograph often does, coming out of nowhere and landing right in front of you. That’s a fine way to live.

~Joel Meyerowitz

noticing

She brings a camera everywhere,
notices the little things,
gets a cup of coffee at a different cafe,
takes the long way home”.

Sometimes what we learn and who we become in the process of waiting is even more important than what we’re waiting for.

To have a good day is more than I expect, sometimes.
But I did enjoy the one that started with my child asking,
while looking at the calendar, “Is today an odd or evil day?”

Humbled and grateful to have my work featured in the Summer 2017 edition of “Bella Grace Magazine”.  A sweet start to the season.

To accept whatever comes, regardless of the consequences, is to be unafraid or to be full of that love which comes from a sense of at-oneness with whatever . . . In other words there is no split between spirit and matter. And to realize this, we have only suddenly to awake to the fact. I have noticed it happens and when it does it partakes of the miraculous.

~ John Cage “Juilliard Lecture” in A Year from Monday (1952)

There were signs
but it seems
spring is just not ready for us yet.
