Purple tulips #1

The best thing about photography: it changes your point of view.

~ Nina Hrusa

Purple tulips #2

Just as you can pick out the voice of a loved one in the tumult of a noisy room, or spot your child’s smile in a sea of faces, intimate connection allows recognition in an all-too-often anonymous world. This sense of connection arises from a special kind of discrimination, a search image that comes from a long time spent looking and listening. Intimacy gives us a different way of seeing, when visual acuity is not enough.

~ Robin Wall Kimmerer, Gathering Moss 

Purple tulips #3

Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.

~Kurt Vonnegut

A few of the 10,000 reasons to be happy:  701)  A world in which there are purple tulips.  702)  This beautiful May day that is light and breezy.  703)  Sitting on the bench under the maple tree, listening and learning.  704)  Different perspectives.  705)  Broccoli rabe (rapini), fresh from the garden.


Robin is... too many things to list, but here is a start: an artist and writer; a photographer and saunterer; a daughter and sister and granddaughter; a friend, a partner, a wife, a mother, and a grandmother; a gardener, a great and imaginative cook, and the creator of wonderful sandwiches.
