fragment

 

I see a train or the subway and I am transported back to the 1950s
my grandmother would take me on the train to Boston
(she always wore a dress and cuban heeled shoes)
for a day of shopping
and blueberry muffins from the bakery at Jordan Marsh
one time she took me to the movies
we saw Bambi and I cried all the way home

 

finding myself

in this tiny seaside town

once again

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.”

wishes

 

wishing you lots of love and light
this holiday season
and into the new year

lakeside light

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Our job is to record, each in his own way,

this world of light and shadow and time

that will never come again

exactly as it is today.”

 “There is a saying about seeing: Only a few people can see but most people don’t even look. And that says a lot to me. You can only see if you have something in your mind to bring to the picture. The camera is just the least important adjunct to your ideas. Your observations are important because they’re you. The camera is just a gadget you can carry on in your hand or around your neck or on a tripod.”
