A Bit of Time

Look deep, deep, deep into nature, 
and then you will understand everything.
                                          Albert Einstein

That Albert, what a smart fellow he was.
Hope your week includes 
a bit of time with nature.

Blanketing the Ground

It has been raining

and blowing

taking the last leaves from the trees

and blanketing the ground with color.

Oh thank you mother nature,
on this Thanksgiving
please know
I am grateful for your gifts.

Picturing You

Every day we should 
hear at least one little song, 
read one good poem, 
see one exquisite picture, 
and, if possible, 
speak a few sensible words. 

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

35mm to Digital

Old memories. Our lives are full of them, yes? Some treasured, some less so. Many never settle long enough to fully form. Other moments in time, memories, are so poignant they remain in perfect form through decades. We remember the feel of the air, the placement of the sun in the sky, the scents and the sounds filling in the remaining blank spots on the canvas. 

Such a gift, old memories. And if we are lucky, when those gifted memories do begin to fade, we have images to assist in re-painting our mental canvas. 

I've been digging through old photos, taken long ago on a quiet street in Oaxaca. They surfaced along with other images I'm trying to transition from 35mm to digital. Others may find their way here, or not. The process of walking back in time, the remembering, is the journey of the moment. And I remain ever grateful for the lasting images made possible in part by good ole' Kodak film. You were a friend of mine.
