Your fractured petals

They burst with a new color-

My sad spring deferred

 

Our world has changed.

Will it ever be the same again?

Probably not.

The threat of the coronavirus looms large in our minds and hearts. We can try hard to escape it, retreating further into our virtual world of social media madness, or we can take some time to reflect. Whatever we choose to do in these uncertain times will reveal our core nature. What is it that we need as a culture, as a society? How can we learn to love our neighbor when the fear of loss steals our security by the minute. Where’s our spring? Can it live in our hearts even if our lives have been destroyed by fate? I’d like to think we can. We must challenge ourselves and others to maintain a positive attitude despite the chaos, defusing the hate instead of adding to it.

Sometimes laborious chores offer the perfect photo opportunities.

I have an allergy to cleaning.
At every turn, I find a creative way to avoid it.
However, when I do get around to it, I try to find joy and mystery in my domestic misery.
Mopping the floor doesn’t have to boring!
When the water buckets stack in your favor, you know you have something special.

One summer afternoon, we decided to put unwanted items in storage. We took a trip to Lowes Hardware Store, picked up some heavy duty moving boxes and headed for our local Target for packing supplies. When we got home, we started to assign a number of books, clothes etc. to their designated stations. As we sealed each box with tape, I noticed the elongated bubbles that formed beige rivers on the surface. Imagining this was an aerial view of a mysterious landscape, I carefully composed my shot. Initially, I had two different versions of this photograph. However, I was more pleased with the strength of the lines and texture of the back and white one.
