Oh, the longing...

I miss my camera. I miss the push to get my photo done, the push to GO OUT into my world and find something, ANYTHING, that desires to be admired through the eye of the lens, and SNAP it! I miss my sister. I miss knowing that she also was looking through a small portal into her world every day, and eventually sending me an image to put out into the world together.

I have started back to my morning pages. I started back to Artist Dates. I took photos at sunset last week. I took my Canon with me on my bike ride today and when I passed mushrooms as big as my foot -  gleaming with morning dew not yet absorbed by the rays of the sun, I stopped to unpack my Canon. Then I saw birds, begging for a moment of attention, hiding along the edges of the Gulf water.

So I am posting. Bah! I am posting!! Alone, together, either way, I am POSTING! Watch me!

dear camera

Evelyn: I know I am not using you the way I used to. Instagram and iPhone have taken the brunt of my photography endeavors. But I want you to know that I appreciate the depth of your lens, and the way I see the world when I look through your viewfinder. I am hopeful we might tickle the pages with a bit more of these... as I miss the way our photographs created connection. <3 e="" love="" p="">

dear camera:

Monica: I've missed you. I walked to work for the first time in months and was thrilled to hop over little newts ambling slowly along the trail. The plum and nectarine trees are beginning to bloom in front of the hotel. I am so excited for spring...
