A whiff. A beagle for beauty I sniffed Monet's haystacks, van Gogh's sunflowers, Devoutly meditated Marilyn's breasts, Watched kingfishers—lost the scent. Kiss the leper's wound: taste honey. Touch the blind eye: learn Braille. Keep vigil at the cradle: change diapers.

Converge (my faith community) went out to Rosen Lake for a weekend retreat. I left early morning Sat. and stopped to take some shots of mist rising in the foothills of southern Alberta . Was happy with the results so made a mental note to get up early on Sunday and take pictures of Rosen Lake.

The marketing of the Good Lie creeps me out. A story of the Lost Boys of Sudan has Reese Witherspoon's air brushed photo on the cover. The trailer above is a great example of this, it has 90% of her dialog from the entire movie. That makes up most of the trailer, it is a minor part of the movie.
