Found a Canna
Shooting early in the morn-a
Was like a sauna.
(More like a sauna in Botswana)
Felt like I was a goner.
But now...Nirvana.

She was absolutely beautiful and such a trooper; posing for me in the early morning chill, holding exquisitely still even when the stupid bug flew up her nostril and just sat there...

Tiny things.

As the gargantuan things engulf us, overwhelm us and continue to divide us...
What if we each were to focus on the tiny things?
What if we each chose just one tiny thing each day?
What if we each examined that one thing closely...
studied it from every angle... 

I believe we would each discover some truth in that one tiny thing.
We would each 
find the beauty in that one tiny thing.
And then, what if, as the truth and beauty in that one tiny thing were revealed to us…we shared it.
Shared it with love, patience and empathy. 

And then had discussions about these tiny things that matter to each of us. With respect and compassion.
And then the next day, found another tiny thing to focus on. And found the truth and beauty in. And shared that.
And another.
And another.
Perhaps we would all have better, more beautiful discussions.
Certainly, our newsfeeds would be a little more truthful.
A little more beautiful.
And might give us more to think about and ultimately to smile about.
What if...

Join the Macro Party.
Focusing on the tiny things to make a world of change.™

Get out the crumbs.
Get out the lice.
Get out the tangles.
Get out the detritus.
Get out the vote.

17 years and I still remember where I was, the frantic phone calls to and from friends working in the Towers and their families; watching the way-beyond-incredible first responders head in as thousands of terrified others were running to get away.
I have the distinct honor of having gotten to know one of those incredible heroes via Stacey (through Toby and Jack, two of my favorite new friends).
So here's to Danny Rowan. And all the first responders who continue to charge in. I wish you a lifetime of standing ovations knowing that will do little to drown out the memories you carry with you. This is one of those days where saying "Thank you for your service...your superhuman heroic service" doesn't do justice to what this country owes you.

This morning I am thinking about judges, judgments, hearings (and feelings) with lots of talk about papers. I wanted to weigh in: I will officially go on record: I love my ILFORD Galerie Prestige fine art printing papers. Yes...Papers. I have many of them; ...
