A Small Break

Well, I am off again...I wish I could say I will be in Paris...shooting....of course...I don't think this is the right time of year to go to Paris...but I will go any time!! Maybe next year?

My brother is actually going to London for a month and I am going to take care of my father...I am hoping I will be able to find a little take photos and read...I like to read to my dad and sneak him all the foods he is not supposed to have.

So, I would like to update my blog...because I might really have some time for that, but I don't know if I will be able to upload my I might be away for awhile....

I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments and generosity....spending time reading my blog....Hope everyone is having a lovely summer...See you soon!

Another Day Another Poem

Today I processed and printed some ballet recital photos of my husband's grand daughter. She is 10 and a beautiful ballerina..I have used her as a model before and hope to photograph her again this summer. Now, I am off to photograph a one year old "baby" for a birthday portrait. I am so busy...getting ready to leave and take care of my father for a month..who is nearing the end of his life. So much going on....birth and closely related....perhaps it is the poets who say it best:

What Issa Heard

Two hundred years ago
Issa heard
the morning birds
singing sutras
to this suffering world.

I heard them too,
this morning,
which must mean

since we will always have
a suffering world
we must also always
have a song.

by David Budbill
contemporary American Poet
written about the Japanese Haiku poet Issa
