What I see is my niece holding on to her cat. What I remember is that cat did not want to be held on to! What I know is I do the same thing all too often – hold on tight to things that want to be let go. And sometimes I don’t hold tight enough to the things I should. But it’s a brand new year, and a good time to evaluate what I hold dear, what I need to put more time and energy into, and what I need to just let go.
Cheers to a new year
and another chance
for us to get it right.

Here’s one just because I like it! I don’t know what kind of bug that is, but I’ve never seen one with wings like that. It looks like an optical illusion in some pictures, but I can see clearly here that the wings are split or there are four of them or something. Anyway, I like this photo.

What I see is Louis checking out a turtle that’s nearly as big as he is. What I think is some of us are less sociable than others.
Society is no comfort to one not sociable.

What I see is a fish and its reflection. What I think is if you look below the surface, you will find a treasure.
People say I make strange choices,
but they’re not strange for me.
My sickness is that I’m fascinated by human behavior,
by what’s underneath the surface,
by the worlds inside people.

What I see is a turtle keeping cool. What I think is that summer is almost over!
is being your own self.

I spent last weekend at the river and had the opportunity to photograph the crabs that my dad let go (guess what was for dinner?). What I see is the claw of a female crab, ready for action. What I immediately thought when I looked through the viewfinder was, “the teeth on that claw look just like my dog’s teeth”.
People are pretty much alike.
It’s only that our differences
are more susceptible to definition
than our similarities.

My niece, who just turned a year old last month. What I see is Allison practically swallowed up in her sister’s dress up clothes. What I think is she’ll grow into them faster than I’d like.
Making the decision to have a child
It is to decide forever to have your heart
go walking around outside your body.
