The Conversation

  I’m Thinking

It’s the rectangles. They’re everywhere! Not only that but there’s a crowd of people in this photograph, including me in the upper right corner.

Joy



This lovely lady is currently 14 years sober. She is the executive director of a shelter for the homeless and another one for battered women. She used to sell all kind of drugs on the street to support her habit. She’s been there, seen it all and stepped back from the brink just in time to turn her life around.

The wonderful infectious joy she had is hard to explain but, in her presence one could definitely feel it.

Chance encounters like this one this morning are an absolute gift!

PS I also should give CVS credit for letting her raise money for her charities in front of their Petaluma store.

Only In California

No further words needed.

California Picture

This is obviously a photograph of a landscape vista. But to my mind it’s more of a tone poem dedicated to a place where nature sings a gentle song of contentment.

Eating Alone

There’s a nice cafe where we often go to for a mid-morning snack. Today I couldn’t help noticing these two guys hunched over completely engrossed in their own thoughts. My little Ricoh GR was able to take a quick photo of each of them as we were walking out.

Quiet Time

This small plant stem blowing in the breeze contains in it the dust of stars. If we can understand it we will know all there is to know.

Quiet Moment

It’s always a pleasure seeing a completely contented person. It may only be for the briefest moment but sitting still and loosing oneself in thought should be a daily goal for all of us.
