i think the lily pads are beautiful this way. usually they're resting their weary heads on top of the water, doing what the pond tells them to do, but with our drought, they've literally stood up for themselves, while waiting for relief with the rest of us.
i recently finished susannah conway's book, "this i know" and loved it. it can be found in the "death and grieving" section of some bookstores,
which just seems wrong to me. i think it's so much more than that. if i owned a bookstore, her book would be found in the "living, loving, love yourself, do what you love, eat what you love, photography" section,
on a vintage wallpaper wrapped shelf all by itself.
yep, i really liked it that much.
especially the part when she talked about how she thought she had to be paid for her photography in order to call herself a photographer and discovered that that was a bunch of crap.
